2:01 am
police officers those that put they lives on the line of duty everyday but simultaneously be disturbed by the shootings we've witnessed over the last couple of years residents deserve to know the police standards where use of force and officer misconduct and matched it with community values whether the system holds officer accountable or not i believe we can and hold police accountable in ways that extend beyond the individual complaints by focusing on the police department systematic problems within pd before they arrive to dysfunctional and systemic levels in the last year and a half with that, i want to take a
2:02 am
moment and recognize the tremendous movement forward that our department has come i want to recognize the leadership of the current police commission and the past leadership of greg suhr that spurred on the reform today and take a formatting moment to thank i internship chief chaplain and understanding the seriousness and the entering connectionness this has in many communities but this won't happen in the board of supervisors don't stand together and take acts on real solutions and continue to work to bring about real police
2:03 am
reform now is it so come to my attention maybe motioned that relative to this charter amendment to fold it into the public advocate charter meantime that will completely, completely work to dismantle the work that many people in the room fought for the young people in the chamber today, the naacp and various coalitions you've heard from and seen we can't even begin to have this conversation we can't even politicalize brown and black lives to simply satisfy completely unrelated interests all across the country too many families are growing at the loss
2:04 am
of they loved ones whether their civilian or law enforcement officers we want to begin to heal in the city and put forwards solutions to relay police reforms this year is 5 hundred killings by police officers across the country most of that them have been investigated and justified but something wrong in this country when people can be killed with ini impunity not only a problem of training but oversight per we have an opportunity to model the work we've done with our police department for the entire country that is critical we stand be together with the charter amendment on the ballot it provides a much noted oversight we must place it on the ballots as its own a stand alone measure to allow the voters it to you or
2:05 am
to allow they voices to be heard today, i ask you to think about the videos from across the country and the people that are in this room fighting for skwus and real solutions and those families grieving at the loss of they son or daughter and i ask you move the chapter amendments urb amendments forward. >> supervisor campos. >> colleagues he want to support that but not a a stand alone measure it should be incorporated into our public advocates we center two measures that are sierra club covering the same topic they compliment each of very well and to me we should be not loading up the ballot that's the theme for this afternoon but thinking how we
2:06 am
make sure that we are having a ballot that has clear as possible but having many measures often about the same thing makes our ballot less clear and our duty to make sure we are giving choices and strong choices for the voters to approve i know that there i expect there are votes to support the public advocates position especially with the changes to the companionships to accommodate many concerns of colleagues and to merge those together ask we call items 78 and 79 along with this one supervisor president london breed to have a discussion about those measures together, of course, i think that the measure the police accountability is ready to
2:07 am
community-based today and discussed it we'll have to consider that but suggest we call those items table one of them and allow amendments to be made to what we had exempted with the public advocate before the rules committee merge with the department the police officer accountability and take it as a community as a whole. >> seeing no other names on the roster, supervisor wiener. >> i ask that we call items 78 and 79. >> those are two ballot measures this doesn't require and continuance not related i'm not going to call that ballot measure. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you very much mayor pro tem stirs or first in support of this ballot measure item 37 to strengthen the office of citizens complaints to rename it and strengthen it to provide
2:08 am
it with - we know that has at the heart of police, huh? publ confidence in the police they thought out in an unbiased manner this measure will help to increase the public confidence it is important it is its own idea it is itself own subject stands on its own i don't think that should be moergd and lump into with another measure that frankly goes dramatically beyond what this is trying to accomplish the other measure creates a new protective position takes various executive departments and mergers them
2:09 am
away from the mayor and people some people like it and people don't like it is, it is controversial measure this measure item 37 i don't believe it is controversial it will receive overwhelm support from this board and the voters of san francisco and to merge it into an unrelated measure that is going to be controversial both for this board and the ballot does that make sense and does a disservice for police reform i'd like to see us vote on the merits and it sends a clear measure to the voters and i'm confident the voters will responds cuisine with strong support. >> thank you supervisor wiener supervisor kim. >> thank you. i want to thank
2:10 am
supervisor cowen and her office for her leadership on the charter amendment it is incredibly thoughtful and one of the substantive measures that had bring affordability and transparency and also increase the trust with the community with our police department i think that many of the measures that are put in here in regards to the budget reporting and also insuring staffing to provide adequate investigation will be a commitment we've not provided adequate resources for the government oversight over the police and i want to thank everyone that worked on this measure including the police department to insure we are boston our relationships with our community and really providing for the things the
2:11 am
community members or so asking for this is a big step in the right direction and i want to recognize sxoelg for her leadership and impressed with the entire charter and look forward it on the back ballot whether here or part of public advocates charter amendment that will be going forward to voters. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> supervisor farr >> thank you supervisor breed and just two points i again want to thank supervisor cowen for her leadership and continuing to be you know a leader when we talk about occ and this measure out of respective to the colleague especially, as as sponsor it is fair we give a vote here and right now on this measure, and, secondly, to echo some previous comment i don't know that is an important measure we agree that the vast
2:12 am
majority san franciscans will agree on why we'll risk putting it in with another mile-an-hour whatever - if you view this as an important issue and something you want to stand behind no reason not to support it as a stand alone measure. >> thank you supervisor campos madam chair rosales. >> i'd like to refer this item to larnlt in the agenda supervisor cowen. >> i am glad you're trying to politicalize this incredibly important life or death great job supervisor campos that is why we need this to be separate supervisor kim why stand alone public advocate may or may not

2:15 am
supervisor mar i heard from the various protests of police brutality and racism to historical ungo accountable action by police that the oak hats not be able to rein in in many ways and the police need anatomy and ouch from the mayor's office and at the police commission role i think the public advocate is the way to move forward so the public could a elect an extinct independent person to oversee not only the police reforms but the other measures i present but i've heard from the 57 to other efforts in the city is an independent oversight body i think the publicly advocate choufdz that i appreciate the
2:16 am
creation of a new department but the way forward for true definition and the community - i'm supportive and my hope you and the coalitions work together for the independent oversight necessary with the police commission and the okay and other agencies as well. >> madam clerk call the roll. >> i've i'm not recognized. >> call the roll. >> madam president you actually decide the order of business, however, if a board member want to appeal that's an order. >> madam clerk please call the roll.

2:20 am
until a if you days ago unthinkable that any member of the board to suggest for a minute as something as important and non-controversial as this police accountability measure will be forcingly overrule the objection. of author merged into another amendment this is out arraign this is happening that is what this board of supervisors has now come to a majority that decides they'll flex they muscle if you're not on they team our ballot measure is dead no matter how important that is what the happening the majority has ever right in the world to do whatever with whatever measure that's the reality happening right now at the board of supervisors and frankly those measures are not evaluated on they merits but
2:21 am
based on the politics is any wonder the public approval rating of the board of supervisors continues to go down is it not okay. >> thank you, supervisor wiener and supervisor cowen on the continuance. >> i'm definitely against the continuance no reason to continue it is the facts are laid in committee that is silly game that had been played i support occ but in the team of a maker advocate i'm the maker lowell high school when it comes to ballot time to vote you remember who stood with the community and supports this measure as a stand alone you remember who stood with i will remind people every step the way who was with us and not from now until eternity. >> thank you supervisor cowen supervisor avalos on the continuance.

continuance. >> thank you supervisor farrell supervisor avalos. >> thank you. i just want to say that none in the room has a monopoly oneself inclination so talk about the elephant in the room every year our board chambers has a somewhat of a progressive majority but the elephant in the room in the committee they stacked to bottle up legislation and have to have mandatory to get measures to have a discussion at the full board amendments are made toy people's legislation that are hostile amendments and bottled 0 in committee that is the dirty politics we're playing and when measures get to the board of supervisors the committee has a sneaky underhanded way of making amendment to what we're trying to legislate on is hypocrisy i'm calling it out we should give
2:25 am
out ticket for hypocrisy. >> remind the members pursuant the conduct of supervisors may not impugn the board members please. thank you, madam clerk. >> supervisor wiener. >> i want to i don't know why supervisor avalos is saying about that comment, in fact, i've supported supervisor kim's city college measure i didn't try to forcefully change and sports through the chair madam chair rosales a number of your measures didn't notice forcefully amend. >> supervisor avalos auditor. >> supervisor campos not seen eye to eye and sports a number of measures he's put forward so i want to make sure we're not

2:28 am
give the voters a chance to see if they want to consider a split appointment for the mta commission and the city planning commission that's the major issue here and we also know that mta budget has been increasing and conditions to there oil hopeful that speak of the ballot measures had continue to support increase in transportation as most of us want to see happen the other major issue that i'm asking the voters to consider would be to bring how we vote on the budget for mta similar to despite every other department we've looked at from the 7 that circling digest to pass the
2:29 am
budget item to 6. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you. i want to thank supervisor yee that is something that it its been a long time coming and my office worked on a similar ballot measure a number of years ago and at that time, unfortunately deal was cut supposedly to reform the mta without a ballot measure if you ask the people of the city and county of san francisco if those reforms will have actually been real and become i think grenade in how this action operates that most san franciscans will say that that reform has not happened that is about giving every rider of public transit
2:30 am
and every resident of this city that is an exacted by the actions of municipal transportation agency more say in how that agency operates for accountable and transparent i'm happy to support. >> thank you, supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam president colleagues, i will not be supporting this measure today many years the board of supervisors had significant control over and melted but with muni and we saw the results of a deteriorating transit system and all sorts of problems dramatic under investment and divert the funds the voters weighed in and took control of muni away from
2:31 am
the board of supervisors by creating the municipal transportation agency as a semi independent agency and combining the muni and traffic and substantial pursuant to a measure that supervisor peskin supported the taxicab commission into the mta and the goal to coast create one agency a purview over the integrated transportation all over the place prop e it created the matt restricted the ability of board of supervisors to meddle in the budget of mta by creating a 7 threshold to regret the budget and setting other rules the board will intervene in serious circumstances this
2:32 am
measure addition in addition to splitting the appointment makes it much, much easier and attempting for the board of supervisors to meddle in the mta's bucket that i don't not going to be to the benefit of transportation in san francisco i think we'll quick go back to the bad old days where the mta is not basic transportation on good transportation policy but rather than on the political whims of the board of supervisors i don't support that we have so many transportation challenges and need to be moving in a positive direction this measure is not positive i can't remember 8 years ago the voters overwhelmingly not close overwhelmingly rejected a similar measures that split the board of supervisors appointment and weighed in i understand if
2:33 am
you lose an election by a little bit going the second time but the voters might have 65, 35 and go back and include the ability the board of supervisors to meddle in the mta's budget is not a good thing i'll be voting no. >> thank you, supervisor wiener supervisor yee. >> you know there's a lot of things that have changed i'm one that is not afraid to make changes and be more transparency we could use the word medicineing our responsibility to meddle in our fiduciary are we medicineing. >> seeing no other names on

all lgbt people and specifically to collect data around the lgbt committee members that are assessing city fund health and human services the lgbt community battle over time for centuries from million has been a battle negligence visibility our enemies want 80 us to be inviolably and not public and i think invisible before north carolina or mississippi or indiana or any number of states that continues to tell us to go away and disappear and one of the best things we can do to make sure this community is never invisible is to understand who we are and where we are and collecting data is critical to doing that in our health and human services
2:46 am
in san francisco we collect data around gender and ethnicity and age and so forth but we don't collect consistent data around sexual orientation and gender identity that requires a number of city departments and the nonprofits they fund ask simply ask the question for people that are assessing the services in other words, where they're a lgbt no one is required to provide the data is it so volunteer y that's not public but a very, very positive step forward i want to thank our lgbt task force for its work and thank adam taylor in i office for his work and acknowledge assembly member

3:00 am
unanimously. >> madam clerk back to our agenda where we left off. >> item 61 madam president. >> call 61 and 75. >> that was referred without recommendation phenomenon is land use committee to allow the accessory dwelling unit as second in-law unit units on all areas that allow the residential use for the restriction of rent-controlled units and talk about the ceqa determination and item 75 was considered by the land use and transportation at a regular meeting on july 18th and forwarded as a committee report this is an ordinance for the planning code to allow for the construction of accessory between as secondary in-law unit
3:01 am
units in areas that allow rebates as it applies to adu and the ceqa determination and make the appropriate findings. >> supervisor farrell thank you supervisor president london breed colleagues those two measures with called together supervisor cohen'ss measure as well as my measure and supervisor scott wiener regarding side adu's terror to the dialogue to step in a different direction we came to a compromise and thank you, supervisor wiener and supervisor peskin and obviously the housing crisis is front and center in san francisco and adu's are significant tool in the tool shed to alleviate this issue on the near term and less contention with the
3:02 am
construction in the neighborhoods and the proposal in front of us have the potential to create tens of thousands of new units in our city a few things to highlight our proposal together and i'll talk about procedurally i'm voting for and supervisor peskin will weigh in allowing the buildings with 5 or more units and will cap adu's in building with less than 40 units and didn't permit the adu's with 90 no-fault eviction and no adu for a short-term rental we removed some components around storefronts and made sure that we alleged upon a minimum square feet size we talked about yesterday in committee and we will hold it at three hundred for a san francisco and 5 for a one bedroom we always wanted to
3:03 am
make sure we are not exposing any vacancy controls that compromise is the right direction and i want to acknowledge supervisor wiener and then commissioner christensen had done somewhat similar certainly in terms of adu's in their own districts last year the ground work as supervisor peskin introduced this year's and years ago and not brought to a vote butable to bring it together today so why again, i think that is important housing policy i want to thank everyone for they work and colleagues we hope you support it two measures in front of u.s.s. some will require amendments and commissioner peskin might have an idea how to deal with >> thank you supervisor farrell supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president first, let me aid the policy and let me talk about the politics
3:04 am
particularly on this contentious day at the board of supervisors as a matter of policy a piece of legislation that's been a its been a long time coming that larger than any one supervisor is actually starltsz decades ago with supervisor terrance dealing with in those days the third rail of san francisco politics in-law units and later on was championed by mabel and tom ammiano looked it in 2002 i introduced legislation that was actually, it changed from the previous to supervisors legislation previous supervisors were all dealing with the issue of existing in-law unit legalization this was very, very contentious on the west side of
3:05 am
san francisco i understood in 2002 in incentive virgos new in-law units it was a contention ceqa appeal which interesting enough that board or that board on a 6 to 5 vote rejected the ceqa appeal but then one particular member of the board hadn't had it we didn't votes on that underlying and my predecessor and successor david chiu trod and then commissioner christensen my immediate predecessors policy discussions and involving the way the electorate has dealt with this the politics of this board has changed i'm delighted the votes
3:06 am
are here today for this measure and work has begun we actually need to incentivize with some affirmative action by the city the creation of those units pacific gas & electric this legislation today is not enough i think that we need to create a program modeled on our mandatory guess seismically retrofit we reach out to the thousands of property owners that can avail themselves of the toll and show them is it so economically beneficial to them and help them tell the jury we should streamline the process and make process improvements and dbi and planning so i'm hopeful we will work together this year and there to mark those process improvements and watch that program and end up not what a few hundred hundred units about any thousand
3:07 am
in the years and most to come thank you to supervisor wiener i said to him in committee copying his caps was the highest intimidation of flattery and let me say as a matter of land use land use planning on the supervisorial lines doesn't marnls in many districts if you have a uniformly residential district it might make sense but the district i recommend has half of downtowns as you can see and fisherman's wharf and doing this kind of legislation by supervisorial dpangs i'm delighted we're getting a unaware away from supervisorial district and talked about the
3:08 am
politics because the rap on the board i served on was and some of this was perception and some realty we remember not together and civil and the wrap on the board that got elected in 2008, a board of colleagues the pathway to those two pieces of legislation that are before you the compromise that was forged babe in a way that actually quite frankly i want to be honest was not civil generally when someone introduces a piece of legislation in march and has trouble with it that he significant to the sponsor amendments rather than going to the ballot we've resolved all that i think that today is a good day to show
3:09 am
we, work across the aisle but it also i think that a sign that many of the fights we are expressing today could have and should have been resolved in the process so i'm quite certain that while our policy concerns about all the other things come from the legitimate placed they ways those things can have been solved we all live in the building and know what the side conversations have been it's unfortunate that all of us couldn't do relative to the other measures what supervisor farrell and i were able to do and i think that that can actually be done i won't get into the specification i hope we don't have another day like this at the board of supervisors i
3:10 am
for one was delighted to come to a board that prides it's in collaboration. >> with that, supervisor tang has agreed to do which is this. >> you don't think so i don't know what i'm augusto. >> exactly right supervisor farrell has amendments to conform the legislation i have some amendments tool conform i passed those amendments out to all of you and make a motion as to item 6 is to adapt those amendments all of which were discussed in committee yesterday and the previous mondays so i'd like to make a motion to adopt those i believe that supervisor farrell has amendments and two identical piece of legislative and in the spirit of collaboration i'll take that
3:11 am
coin and supervisor farrell agree if it is heads it had been item 61 rae tails item 75 that move forward. >> supervisor peskin a maid a motion to move. >> colleagues we'll take that without objection. without objection they pass anonymously. >> supervisor wiener. >> i'm defer for supervisor farrell to speak for me with the permission. >> other supervisors have not been called i have to call on him when i'm done. >> that's fine that is an existing day as supervisor peskin mentioned i mean this was actually beyond the third rail that was legalizing the tens of thousands of existing illegal units that
3:12 am
was the battle grounds for decades and decades of people living in them seal families and whether to legalize that's the fights i don't know about that until 15 years ago and allowing adding new in-law units and so this goes really beyond the third rail supervisor peskin the legislation was not able to get a majority so i agree with citywide is the way to go but by the way of context we had no ability to pass legislation to allow for new in-law units and supervisor peskins legislation that was citywide failed so when i waited into this area wherever it was four or five years ago
3:13 am
did so by the way of a pilot program not q with adjudicate 8 but the castro and got a lot of support and passed out that legislation all over the place when the sky didn't fall we extend to to da to all of district 8 and at the time i put out the challenge to colleagues, we want to extend that and hopefully citywide commissioner christensen took the bait and in a good way and extended to district 3 and now we're extending it statewide. >> so i'm glad that it is a good direction and shows where we are as the city we can't afford to do things in terms of housing the way we've done them not the way of conservation in louis for new housing so i think the political landscape has shifted and it is interesting
3:14 am
that in committee and the hearings we've he would say citywide adu legislation there was this in any out right opposition more of a dispute about rear yard and we resolved that made clear we value the rear yards but that in and of itself year ago this legislation would have sparked world war iii and didn't come close i want to note the prevention i have not just in district 8 but also a much broader smoefk adu allowing the people going through the seismically retrofits to add as many units into the building a multi building we eliminate the caps and we went beyond district 8 and i want to thank supervisor farrell and supervisor peskin for mincing the intibltd within
3:15 am
the legislation bruce because the seismic program is working and permits are pulled one issue i do want to raise we had a lengthy discussion the square footage minimum and i know that supervisor and supervisor farrell and my legislation fog minimum just the citywide minimum square footage and supervisor peskin put a minimum of three hundred and 50 feet for a studio hundred for a one bedroom and committee i thought was a place holder reduced it 5 hundred for a one bedroom i don't think this is the rights approach i don't have a problem with a minimum but i think that the minimum for the one bedroom is too high first of all, as i pointed out yesterday, i live i happen to live in a 4 hundred and 90
3:16 am
square feet bedroom it is more than enough space for me commissioner peskin i'll be happy to give you an inspection and a nice a place to live in. >> i want to make sure there's enough head room. >> there is i think that 5 hundred square feet store a one bedroom is too how what will happen 4 hundred and 50 square feet that he of they want to build a one bedroom knock down the wall and build a large to and give junior one bedroom and i i don't want the city to be micro managing that so i'll suggest to me i think having a minimum of three hundred square feet period is the right way to go rather than
3:17 am
go trying to distinguish the one bedroom or if people think this is important to have a separate square feet for one bedroom have it be a lower maybe three hundred and 350s or 375 for a one bedroom that's the original concern about this legislation. >> so through the chair to supervisor peskin. >> you have a question. >> i have a question and supervisor peskin supervisor wiener has a question. >> my question since we had this dialogue yesterday and we put those numbers with the thinks we'll revisit it today, i know the planning department has produced new statistics in terms of the pipeline projects that will be impacted apart from the pipeline we can obviously if he wanted to grandfather in the pipeline i want to go forward with the program and see that
3:18 am
succeed and a 5 hundred square feet for one bedroom is not going to help the program but hinder it. >> supervisor cohen's. >> thank you madam president through the president to supervisor wiener i've looked at the numbers for the hundreds and 3 of the hundred and 5 units in the pipeline a small snapshot and i am prepared to do the following which is to have an uncodified section of the legislation which says the flapt show a prepare and submit on the size of the proposed to be constructed pursuant to this planning code the report shall, recorded no later than than the adaptation and include the size data on the adu's constructed or permitted from the effective date of the 207 and any procedure that
3:19 am
include our legislation supervisor wiener up to 12 months of this board and that means in approximately 16 months from day nor data and be able to legislate between now and then why not remove we have two versions of 3 hundreds and 550 and three hundred and a 5 hundred acceleration innocent take out those numbers and have the report preempt adapt this uncodified section number 9 and precede according. >> there's no minimum of the generosity anytime and revisits the issue when the report comes out. >> yes. just to be clear the planning department numbers show that out of one and 3 proposed units in the pipeline only 3 of them fall under the three hundred feet we've discussed yesterday in committee.
3:20 am
>> i think another eight or ten that is sounds like a superb approach. >> i'll hand that amendment out and read the other amendments into the read into the record. >> colleagues direct your remarks to each through the chair supervisor yee. >> supervisor yee. >> thank you. i appreciate the colleague outlet i want to say that for the district i represent integrity 7 we've probably have maybe the thought 11 district maybe a third but no less than the fourth in terms of
3:21 am
the units that are being developed for the last ten years and continue to develop and the approach i've taken i've tried to balance the neighborhood characteristics with the need of city in terms of the housing and for example, lives balboa i've been consistent with the way i vote on these particular items where i feel liquor it will impact the neighborhood characteristics and so in staying consistent i will not be supporting the this particular item that reason and but i do appreciate the efforts that everybody is made to work together on this -
3:22 am
>> thank you supervisor yee supervisor mark farrell. >> thank you supervisor breed and appreciate the comments from the chair. >> excuse me - before i recognize you supervisor farrell commissioner peskin just for clarity the amendments you've previously made not through the conversation between you and supervisor wiener but initially when you first spoke i summaries that was for both measures was that accurate. >> no madam president some of these particular amendments are already in the measure that is item number 75. >> it is there a motion to rescind the vote on the amendments i basically amended both items with any comments. >> oh. >> so a motion to amend commissioner peskin and seconded by commissioner farrell can we take that without objection? without objection the item is no longer amended and we're going

that has been called, however, we also have item 39 which is the three quarters sales tax. >> the item was called they were called and continued to later in the board meeting he asked if we were ready to bring back those items that's why i called for the vote. >> i said that and appreciate the recession those constituent a significant investment in two of the critical issues facing the city the massive needs of our transportation network both in san francisco and regionally and the sloul essential need to create permanent housing for our homeless residence both housing and navigation centers for
3:38 am
people to transition into housing were we initially had proposed a half cents sales tax for transportation through a collaborative stakeholders process we decided instead to go with the three quarters cent sales tax and coming up the charter amendment one half cents will be for transportations and one quarter for permanent housing for homelessness and the naektsz this process a number of supervisors including myself and madam chair rosales we had a board network of homeless service provides as well as transient advocates and worked together 0 collaboratively to move forward a measure that will produce approximately, $1 million a year for transportation including
3:39 am
improvements to muni and facilities and to muni's quality strategy and affordability to make sure our low income residents have strong access to public transportation that will provide few minutes for vision zero to reduce and ultimate eliminate the people being killed and soourl joufrd on the road to help bicycle safety and pedestrian safety and fund permanent dedicated stream of funding for rotate resurfacing not depend on the ups and downs of the budget and produce significant funds for the regional partners bart and produce $50 million a year that is one billion dollars over 20 years to pardon me house homeless and create navigation
3:40 am
center that board is on record over and over and over and over now and then we're in a state of emergency around homeless homelessness the state should be in a state of emergency. >> we need to aggressively fund the naektsd when we passed the budget we assumed the budget and the department of homelessness and supportive services has consolidated the department under the leadership of the talented jeff is going to rely on this $50 million a year a billion dollars over 20 years to fund and aggressive strategy to permanently house our homeless population and to have naeths so that people can transition off the streets through the naeths and
3:41 am
ultimately into housing. >> this measure is so social this is those are two of the most basic responsibilities housing our homeless and insuring great transportation in san francisco we should send this to the bottled i want to note that the city sales tax is going to go on by a half of cents this year and even though this is the three quarters sales taxes our sales taxes is up by a quarter not the three quarters of a cent colleagues he urge your support of this important measure and people hope we can put politics aside and g agree we need to fund the hours for homeless people as well as the public transportation i urge your support. >> thank you supervisor peskin. >> supervisor avalos. >> thank you
3:42 am
here's a moment where if things are not moving forward with the new revenue measure i will lay down any arms and support the three quarters staircaales taxe not easy to do that i feel based on the conversations yesterday with advocates who i work with more many, many years to make sure we have the affordability and transit quality built into the processes for the mta budgets and this charter amendment will are flexibility in terms of move money allocated to affordability and service i will end up supporting the with sales tax i've been disappointed with how we had very
3:43 am
corroborative and collaborative and congenial discussions about crafting this amendment and how that fell apart with measures i felt were undermining our fort to have a common approach to how the transportation and homelessness in particular homelessness but? o this is more about me and what i want we're looking at putting forward capital for our transportation system we're looking for creating greater exits for homelessness i can't vote against that measure when that great good is before us colleagues puts they names on ballot measures that are mean spirtsdz and serve as language that is in the books that gives the police broad power to remove the continents without notice twenty-four hours notice that
3:44 am
doesn't matter and i was not happy with having moving forward on clear exits to homelessness but under the stick approach the police have even if they're sharing the housing that is available the housing is a finite number but in the spirits the city california together to over multi measures those measure forward with the twaertsdz of a cent sales tax i'll put my different differences aside and move forward what i think that the right thing to do that many people outside of city hall worked for and hoping that we can get to the ballot and win at the ballot as well i wanted to make that announcement and other alternatives where we can get revenue i'll be supporting what
3:45 am
we have before us. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> thank you want to talk about my position on those two items i actually do support the expenditure plan that is in the charter amendment in item 34 i think those are great use of funds both towards transportation and homeless services what i don't support of source of revenue i have stated before in the report my position on taxed i think are aggressive a point sufficing an additional aggressive take into consideration tax i building impacts our low income low income spend less they'll spends lessen sales tax but that money does matter that's why we don't tax everyone on income with the same percentage if you make less
3:46 am
you get tacked less we'll have flat tax by the way, we know that 10 percent income means for are more than a person making one million dollars i want to respective the work on the transportation organization i would have support a percent tax i can't say supports on the .75 sales tax before any measures additional measures put on the measures i will be voting no my vote is not political a position that is long held and not support of .75 look at this or live one within the means and so my opposition again to the source of these additional funds on sales tax not how the expenditure plan is put forward
3:47 am
today. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president and supervisor kim's couldn't have said that better than that waste of time i'll associate microorganism with her comments. >> thank you supervisor campos. >> thank you madam president very difficult issue for me, i have to say is the idea of funds homelessness with the regressive tax is something that a general rule i don't like i actually think we should have gone a different route in terms of where we are in this i think there are different ways the city can fund homelessness and it is regrettable we're in the predict if you want to fund the homelessness you have to support something that ultimately will hurt protecting people more than it does everyone else i don't think that
3:48 am
is how we should address this problem. >> i'm balanced with that said, i think that is one of the things where you're making it difficult decision that has bad consequences either way at the end of the day it is the comments and thoughts this is the advocates about the impact direct impact on homelessness people and the services we're funding if this tax measure didn't go forward that weigh it for me to go willing to change my vote to let this item go forward but i think we need to think more creatively as a city about homelessness and at the end of the day for me homelessness has become that one issue that everyone copes raising and talking about and the reason we put farjd forward
3:49 am
a piece of legislation around the creation and establishment of navigation centers was to respond to that in supporting this measure we want to make sure that that strategy is funded but i also think that we have to go beyond you know a regrief tax he hope we have a greater and larger conversation as the city how to move forward and as important hsa as new revenue how to actually look at the exit revenue that we are spends what is the effectiveness the programs we're funding i believe that we need to have an analysis and quite frankly for this tax or any measure to pass at the ballot we'll have to present that to the voters. >> thank you supervisor yee. >> i'll keep it short the last two or 3 speakers i
3:50 am
agree with it is difficult to ask our residents to keep on paying more and more and more that's why i said earlier this is a funny way to balance similar to the comments we're making i will be supporting some things but i would have considering the .5 even that would be difficult base know that is reingressive at the same time there is a lot of needs in the city and we can't keep on asking the residents to be paying for all the needs asking the question of are we making the best efficient uses of the revenues we do have. >> thank you, madam chair i mean, i'll be supportive of two
3:51 am
measures i want to thank the months and months of work from the transportation equitable working group to the transportation advocates vision zero coalition especially walk sf calls from homeless service provides to grassroots coalition on homelessness and others for weighing in on those important measures i wish we could have found a half cent approach with the funding for homelessness measures we were not able to do that i'll be supportive largely because i viewer that has as equitable funding stream that supports the transportation on a board level but the equality concerns thanks to supervisor farrell and supervisor wiener and the mayor's office i feel that equality built in makes it
3:52 am
palatable and hope the communities support the three quarters sales taxes hsa as to move forward to the ballot. >> supervisor yee. >> roll call vote. >> okay. colleagues on item number 39 madam clerk call the roll. >> supervisor farrell. >> supervisor kim no supervisor mar supervisor peskin no supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee no supervisor avalos supervisor breed supervisor campos
3:53 am
supervisor cowen there are 8 i's and that notice nos were you supervisor kim supervisor peskin and supervisor yee in the descent that ordinance passes on the first reading and item 34. >> supervisor farrell supervisor kim i'm sorry supervisor kim. >> can you repeat our vote supervisor kim no supervisor mar supervisor peskin no supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee no >> supervisor avalos supervisor breed supervisor campos supervisor cowen there are 8 i's and 3 notices with supervisor kim supervisor mar and supervisor yee in the descent. >> the charter amendment will be submitted.
3:54 am
>> actually madam clerk i think you had that 0 wrong. >> it's supervisor kim and supervisor peskin and supervisor yee in the descents the charter amendment will be submitted. >> supervisor mar. >> well, i was correcting the miss reading of who voted in support. >> thank you back to the budget items item 6 through 29 a okay anyone have any comments supervisor avalos. >> thank you sxhoepdz just a couple of comments and make a motion as well i think there was an issue with the final list of the board of supervisors put together on the reappropriation of the budget that had excluded what i thought was on the list 2 henry adams and $50,000 important violence against women and a cola
3:55 am
