State lawmakers are also looking at whether area transit agencies hire enough minorities.On Monday, the House mass transit committee held a hearing on diversity within the workforce of the regional transportation authority.

State Representative Luis Arroyo is the committee's vice chair. He criticized the CTA for not hiring more Latinos at the administration level.

The CTA says Hispanics fill over 11 percent of the agency's management positions.
