Committee to hear bill on landlords sharing bond costs

The Land Use and Economic Development Committee will hear legislation that would allow landlords to pass on to tenants 50 percent of the cost of any future school district and community college district bond measures. The legislation comes as the San Francisco Unified School District seeks passage of a Nov. 7 $450 million facilities bond measure. Bonds are funded by property taxes, which are paid by property owners.

The committee meets today, at 1 p.m., in City Hall, Room 263.
