SB50 is the reintroduced version of last year’s SB827. State Senator Scott Wiener went back to the drawing board after SB827 failed in the State Senate, and has now introduced SB50 as a highly edited version of that failed bill. These changes are designed to take into account concerns that community groups raised about SB827.
These are some of the proposed changes, and their potential impacts on San Francisco. We know that the bill will be amended, but for now, we have identified these as areas of concern.
