S.F. Supervisors Table Bill To Close Loophole in Health Law
On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 9-2 to shelve legislation that would have closed a loophole in the city's universal health care law. The measure, by Supervisor David Campos, would have required employers to roll over unused funds from health reimbursement accounts into the next year. Supervisors said they tabled the proposal because of concerns that the measure would affect jobs or threaten the city's health care program. Board President David Chiu asked the San Francisco city attorney to draft a new proposal to close the loophole.
