At their joint meeting on Friday, April 13, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. in Room 400 City Hall, the San Francisco Ethics Commission and the Compliance and Amendments Committee of the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force (SOTF) will discuss draft amendments to the Commission's regulations governing the handling of complaints related to alleged violations of the Sunshine Ordinance and referrals from the SOTF. Commission staff had prepared an earlier version of the draft amendments, which it forwarded to the SOTF for review and comments on August 17, 2010. On August 1, 2011, the SOTF provided comments, along with alternate proposals. At its meeting on November 14, 2011, the Commission began consideration of a revised set of proposals from staff. At the April 13, 2012 joint meeting, the Commission and the Compliance and Amendments Committee members will discuss the proposed regulations, but the Commission will not vote on the adoption of regulations.
The proposed amendments, along with a staff report and documents submitted by the Compliance and Amendments Committee, are available from the Commission office and on its website.
