Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Mayor Rahm Emanuel presented the proposed 2013 budget to the City Council on Wednesday. The $8.3 billion budget promises to balance the City’s finances without introducing new taxes, fines or fees, and eliminates employee head tax by the end of 2013.

The mayor joins Carol Marin on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm for a one-on-one conversation. Watch the full video of Emanuel's budget address below, and view the full transcript and budget presentation in the PDFs below.
