On this NewsViews: CTA President Forrest Claypool defends his public criticism of union work rules, and says a billion-dollar project will remake the Red Line into a virtually new railroad.

$646 million of the one billion was generated by bonds sold after the governor signed the 2009 Illinois capital bill.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel says rehabbing the 79-million-passengers-a-year red line--called the backbone of Chicago's light rail system--will help attract businesses.
