Mayor Lee Says New Budget focuses on Homelessness and Police Reform

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee proposed a budget for the next two fiscal years this morning. He says that his 9.6 billion dollar proposal creates enough new revenue to balance the budget with a sales tax hike of half a percent and greater revenue from property tax. The new funds will go to combat homelessness, violence, and police misconduct, as well as improving quality of life in san Francisco’s neighborhoods. Pacifica’s Mike Kohn files this report from San Francisco city hall.
