The Chicago City Council approved an ordinance that aims to turn down the volume on loud street performers.
Alderman Brendan Reilly (42nd) sponsored the measure, after receiving thousands of noise complaints from people who live and work along the Magnificent Mile.
Street performers typically pay $75 to get a license from the City of Chicago. Under the new rules, that license can be revoked if they pick up 2 excessive noise violations in one year. If the performer is extremely loud, they can lose their license on the first violation.
Critics of the plan say it unfairly targets the poor and will be difficult to enforce.
