Vote on S.F. retiree health care shortfall solution
San Francisco Chronicle

San Francisco voters will be asked next month to approve a measure that seeks to eliminate a projected $4.4 billion shortfall in the city’s retiree health care fund over the coming decades, all without increasing employee or taxpayer contributions.

That lack of cost has resulted in widespread support from both labor and business groups for Proposition A, which was authored by Supervisor Mark Farrell, was placed on the ballot by the entire Board of Supervisors and is supported by Mayor Ed Lee.
