CTU and Allies, "Put TIF Money Back into Schools!"
On Sunday, Rep. John Fritchey (D-11th), joined by students and representatives from Raise Your Hand and CTU, held a press conference where he announced a plan to overhaul TIFs, using a three-part approach:
1. Require an Annual Reimbursement of Surplus TIF Funds
2. Exempt the Chicago Board of Education from any Future TIF Districts
3. Direct the Auditor General to Perform a Comprehensive Audit of TIF Districts
