A coalition of ministers from Chicago's South Side and the south suburbs is making a call for a third Chicago airport in Peotone.

Members of the group The Combined Clergy for Economic Equality gathered at the Thompson Center Friday, calling on Governor Pat Quinn to enter into a lease agreement with the Abraham Lincoln National Airport Commission to build Chicago's third airport.

Clergy members say the Peotone airport would help provide jobs and build businesses for South Side and south suburban communities.
