SAN FRANCISCO’S STATE AND FEDERAL PRIORITIES
The Mayor’s Office Advocates Strongly at the State & Federal Levels for Policies &
Legislation that Benefits All San Franciscans
The Mayor’s Office is responsible for coordinating all intergovernmental activities of the City and County and has effectively advocated at the state and federal levels for legislative and policy priorities that benefit the residents of San Francisco. Recent successes include $500 million in new state bonding authority to accelerate funding and construction for approximately 3,000 affordable housing units in San Francisco’s major redevelopment sites; active support for California’s new $15 statewide minimum wage law; and ongoing advocacy for addition funding from Congress for priorities ranging from transportation infrastructure to housing vouchers to supportive services for the City’s most vulnerable populations.

In addition, the Mayor’s Office chairs the State Legislation Committee, which is directed by the San Francisco Administrative Code (Article III, Sections 5.5 - 5.11) to make recommendations for endorsement, opposition, or neutrality with respect to legislation pending before the State Legislature that would affect the City and County.
