SF health care fight may move from City Hall to the ballot
San Francisco Chronicle

A plan to close a loophole in San Francisco’s landmark health care ordinance won preliminary backing of a split Board of Supervisors Tuesday.

The vote came after Mayor Ed Lee vetoed different legislation last month intended to address the same problem.

The new plan, said Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, who co-sponsored the legislation, will “hopefully better balance the health care needs of employees in San Francisco while at the same time doing what we can to minimize job layoffs.’’
