Joshua Sabatini with the Examiner is keeping us updated on the SF transit fee debate with his recent article. As I posted last week, the proposed policy will be a major expansion of the current fee structure that generates funding for MUNI. On Monday the 19th, San Francisco supervisors voted to put the fee to a full up or down vote on November 3rd. Until then, the debate rages on, especially among hospitals that will be subject to the fee for the first time if the proposal passes.
