Supreme Court asked to ax San Francisco healthcare rule
San Francisco Chronicle, June 9, 2009
The Golden Gate Restaurant Association filed a petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to make the final decision on whether San Francisco's mandate that employers pay for healthcare coverage is legal. The city's universal healthcare program, dubbed Healthy San Francisco, began two years ago and requires that employers with at least 20 employees provide health insurance, set up healthcare spending accounts, or pay into the city's fund. Kevin Westlye, director of the restaurant association, said the fees are incredibly burdensome on restaurant owners.
