Lobbyists may have lost some power at City Hall.
Voters on Tuesday appear to have passed Proposition T, which tasks lobbyists with identifying who in city government they intend to contact in the near future, and then bars the lobbyists from making any gifts to those city officers and their families within 90 days of that activity. The banned gifts include travel.
Supporters have previously said the measure is needed because lobbyists carry undue influence over City Hall.
Nonprofit organizations, however, can still provide gifts of food or refreshment up to $25 for all attendees at a public event, which was an exception that was crafted and added following community outreach.
