S.F. Mayor Ed Lee vetoes worker health-fund measure
San Francisco Business Times

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee followed through on his earlier threat to veto proposed changes to the Healthy San Francisco employer mandate. Lee overturned a measure approved by the Board of Supervisors Oct. 18 that would have prevented employers from reclaiming money deposited in health savings accounts on behalf of workers. A city study said $50.1 million of $62 million deposited in workers’ accounts each year is not used and returns to employers at the end of the year.
