Ordinance approved to help ease pain of divorce

CHICAGO The city council's finance committee unanimously passed the measure. It now heads to the full council.

Committee members ignored a plea from the city's revenue department to reject the proposal because of the budget crisis.

The practice raises more than $1.5 million a year.

Aldermen say it's unfair to people who are already dealing with the pain of divorce.
