Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel Considers Privatizing Midway Airport

Named a panel to explore the option

|

Mayor Rahm Emanuel today named a seven-member panel to advise the city as it explores the possibility of privatizing Midway Airport.

The committee will be asked to represent the public interest in any potential transaction—clearly a nod to public skepticism about privatization deals in the wake of the highly unpopular parking meter transaction.
