Chicago Transit Authority FY2007 Proposed Budget: Analysis and Recommendations

November 08, 2006

The Civic Federation opposes the CTA's FY2007 budget because it relies on 110 million dollars in additional state support which has not been guaranteed, and provides no detailed contingency plan. The Federation recommends that the CTA seek relief in Springfield from some collective bargaining constraints that have failed to address the CTA's enormous employee pension and benefit costs.
