Proposition L: San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency Governance Amendment – Appointments and Budget

Ballot Summary:

Shall the City allow the Mayor to nominate four members to the SFMTA Board of Directors, subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors; allow the Board of Supervisors to appoint three members; reduce from seven to six the number of votes needed for the Board of Supervisors to reject the SFMTA’s proposed budget; and require the SFMTA to respond to the Board’s findings and submit a revised budget if the Board of Supervisors rejected the original budget?

A “Yes” vote means:

A yes vote is a vote in favor of amending the city’s charter to (1) split appointment authority for members of the Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) between the mayor and the board of supervisors and (2) reduce the number of supervisors needed to reject the SFMTA’s budget from seven to six.

A “No” vote means:

A no vote is a vote against this proposition, thereby leaving all of the SFMTA’s board members appointed by the mayor and leaving a seven-vote requirement for the board of supervisors to reject an SFMTA budget proposal.
