File #: 180227    Version: 1 Name: Formal Policy Discussions - March 13, 2018
Type: Hearing Status: Filed
Introduced: 3/7/2018 In control: Board of Supervisors
On agenda: Final action: 3/13/2018
Enactment date: Enactment #:
Title: Pursuant to Charter, Sections 2.103 and 3.100(7), and Administrative Code, Section 2.11, the Mayor shall answer the following eligible question submitted from the Supervisor representing District 5. The Mayor may address the Board initially for up to five minutes. Discussion shall not exceed five minutes per Supervisor. 1. Mr. Mayor: As budget season approaches we are all formulating our budget priorities. There are two pieces of legislation making their way through the Board of Supervisors which will be critical to this year’s budget: an ordinance increasing the hourly rate in the Minimum Compensation Ordinance and an ordinance Supervisor Sheehy and I introduced providing for full scope legal representation to tenants facing eviction. Both of these pieces of legislation serve many of the same policy goals of supporting some of our residents who have the fewest resources to remain here in San Francisco. In January I began discussing a proposal with labor organizations and other stakeholders to fund a portion of the wage increase called for in the proposed amendments to the Minimum Compensation Ordinance of at least an additional 50 cents above the minimum wage effective July 1, 2018, and phasing in the remainder of the proposed wage increase with new revenue sources in the coming year. At the same time we began finalizing the costs of providing full scope legal representation to tenants facing eviction. Will you commit to continuing these efforts and fund at least a 50 cent increase above the minimum wage in the hourly rate for workers covered by the Minimum Compensation Ordinance effective July 1, 2018 (estimated at $14 million) and at least half of the estimated cost to implement full scope legal representation for tenants facing eviction in our city (estimated at $4.29 million) in your proposed budget for fiscal year 2018-2019? (President Breed, District 5)
