Emanuel defends privatization guidelines - Chicago Tribune

"Three years ago, Ald. Roderick Sawyer, 6th, introduced his own ordinance for evaluating proposed privatization of city services, but it didn't become law. Sawyer joined Emanuel in sponsoring the new guidelines, even though the alderman's version would have included worker protection standards and other guidelines for privatizing service contracts as small as $250,000. While acknowledging some smaller privatizations of city services would avoid the tougher rules, Sawyer said he thinks the new proposal could halt another bad deal on the scale of the parking meter lease."
