S.F. Mayor Forms Task Force on Health Care Law Loophole
On Wednesday, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee (D) announced the formation of a task force to close a loophole in a city mandate requiring employers to provide funds for employees' health care costs. The loophole allows employers to recoup any unused health care contributions within a year. Lee's announcement comes one day after the San Francisco Board of Supervisors gave preliminarily approval to a measure to strengthen the mandate. The task force will include business and labor officials, low-wage employees, city public health representatives and eight San Francisco supervisors.
