A representative of the BGA's policy team appeared before a Chicago City Council committee in support an ordinance aimed at allowing the city's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to expand its reach and monitor the influential Public Building Commission (PBC).
Judy Stevens, BGA's policy coordinator, testified Monday before the Committee on Budget and Government Operations and its chairman Ald. Carrie Austin (34th) in support of the proposed ordinance, O2014-6923.
The ordinance passed by voice vote and now moves on to the City Council for debate and final vote.
The proposed law would "play an important role" in advancing government transparency and accountability, Stevens told committee members.
