Lori Lightfoot Crain's

• Pritzker knocks a $29 million hole in Lightfoot’s re-election-year budget: It’s a move prompted by slow-to-recover taxes on COVID-slammed Chicago hotel rooms. It’s also a sign of continued jostling between the two pols.

• Bad roads, bad pipes, bad water: Engineers ding Illinois infrastructure. Despite improvements, a group grades the condition of the state’s roads, transit, waterways and more at C-, the same as four years ago.

• Chicago Fire, Park District clash over Soldier Field sponsorship rights: A feud over whether the soccer team’s recent corporate partnership with Wintrust runs afoul of the Bears’ deal at the stadium is playing out while the city considers the future of the lakefront venue.

• The past, present and future of Divvy bikes in Chicago: Lyft unveils ridership numbers for its bike-sharing program and talks about expansion to all of the city’s 77 neighborhoods this year.
