Proposition H: Contractor cash denied

Contractors bidding on development deals in The City are forbidden from contributing money to local political campaigns, and now city politicians are forbidden to accept money from them, following the passage of Proposition H. The proposition would extend penalties to the officials and candidates who accept contributions, in addition to the contractors. Political contributions to local officials running for office are not forbidden if a number of requirements are met, such as not bidding on a project more than $50,000.
