Nov 2016: YES on Prop T: Ban Gifts from Lobbyists Seeking to Influence Elections

Proposition T would restrict contributions from lobbyists to decision-makers. It bans three things:

  1. Lobbyist contributions to those they lobby, modeled on California state law;
  2. Lobbyist bundling contributions for those they lobby ("bundling" is the practice of collecting contributions from others & passing them along to a decision-maker); and
  3. Gifts, including (to close a loophole) paying for travel through a third party.

Lobbyists would also have to disclose which agency, commission, or official they’re targeting.

The San Francisco League of Conservation Voters supports good governance, and this is a measure that will help create a more transparent and democratic process for our city. Vote YES on Measure T.
