Chicago-area transit policy laid out well by Julie Hamos

On her campaign website here, Representative Julie Hamos (D-Evanston) lays out the Metra/CTA/Pace debate very well. She is the Chair of the Special Committee on Mass Transit for Northeastern Illinois that will likely come up with a consensus solution on funding transit. My prediction: raising the 1/4% sales tax in DuPage, Lake, McHenry, Will and Kane counties to something approaching the 1% levied on Cook County taxpayers will be part of the mix.
