WBEZ’s Illinois and Chicago News Roundup: September 13, 2019
It’s Friday and that means it’s time for Morning Shift’s Friday News Roundup, where we break down the week’s biggest news stories from Chicago and the region.
Chicago Public Schools agreed to federal oversight of its reforms in handling sexual abuse and assault cases. Police misconduct cases in the last 15 years cost the city more than $200 million in private lawyer fees alone. And Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s $3 million affordable housing plan hits a snag in City Council.
Those are just a few of the stories we’ll break down in the Friday News Roundup. Our panel today: WTTW political correspondent and host Paris Schutz; Heather Cherone, managing editor and city hall reporter at The Daily Line; and John Byrne, Chicago Tribune City Hall reporter.
