Editorial Urges S.F. Mayor To Veto Health Care Law Change
A San Francisco Chronicle editorial argues that the San FranciscoÂ Board ofÂ Supervisors "seems to have lost sight of its mission" to close a loophole in a city mandate requiring employers to provide funds for employees' health care costs. Earlier this month, the board granted preliminarily approval to a measure by Supervisor David Campos that "would leave any unspent money in an individual account for at least 18 months after the employee left the job." The editorial states that this money "might not necessarily increase workers' access to health care," concluding that Mayor Ed Lee "should follow through on his threat to veto the Campos legislation."
