Chicago's aviation committee is expected to vote later today on a plan to lease Midway Airport. Aldermen discussed the plan Monday but put off a vote.

A group called the Midway Investment and Development Company put up $2.5 billion to lease and run Midway for the next 99 years.

If the committee passes the plan today the full council could vote tomorrow.
