CHICAGO (WLS) — The Chicago City Council will meet Wednesday, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s plan to give out gas cards could be on the agenda.

Under Lightfoot’s plan, more than $12 million in pre-loaded gas and transit cards would be distributed to provide relief from high gas prices.

The cards would be primarily reserved for residents of the South and West sides.

Mayor Lightfoot plans to travel to Washington D.C. to attend the African-American Mayor’s Association Conference Wednesday after the meeting.

Another item aldermen could consider is the city’s speed camera program. Currently, drivers who go six miles-per-hour or more over the speed limit receive a ticket from the cameras. A proposed ordinance could potentially change that.

Group says Chicago’s new speed camera law unfairly impacts minority drivers

The proposed ordinance would revert the ordinance back to only ticketing drivers going 10 miles-per-hour or more over the limit.
