Editorial Supports Newsom’s Planned Veto of Alcohol Fee
A San Francisco Chronicle editorial supports San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's (D) "promised veto" of a proposal by the Board of Supervisors to impose an alcohol fee that would help cover health costs and services related to alcohol misuse. The editorial concludes that Newsom's "reasons are sensible: A much-taxed industry doesn't need another burden at an economic low point. He's right and his veto should be the last word."
