Proposed paperless law heads to full board

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi found board support Thursday for his proposed legislation that aims to reduce city government’s use of paper.

The law requires city departments to not print documents in excess of 10 pages but instead offer such documents electronically.

“This is a pretty common sense document,” Mirkairmi said. “It’s time that we do a better job in utilizing paper.”

The Board of Supervisors Rules Committee approved the legislation Thursday. The full board is expected to vote on the proposed law Tuesday.

Supervisor Eric Mar praised his colleague and said he was “strongly supportive” of the bill. Committee Chair Supervisor David Campos similarly offered his praise, “It’s really amazing how you keep coming up with these great ideas, when you look at them you wonder why we had not done that.”
