City alcohol fee veto decision up to officials

On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors is scheduled to vote on whether to override Mayor Gavin Newsom’s veto of legislation that would impose an alcohol fee on wholesalers.

The board was scheduled to vote on the possible veto override of Supervisor John Avalos’ legislation Sept. 28, but he asked that the vote be postponed a week.

The legislation passed 6-3, but would need a two-thirds vote to override the mayor’s veto.

The board must act by Oct. 21 or the veto will stand.
