and i have to remember many of us sat here for hours just to deliver the message of several supporters i listen to all of your amendments a day and with general concern for the city needs i believe with 50,000 supporting us to you as democratically elected leaders would be a shapeless case with great concern. as a musician, a dancer and a member of the marching band i appreciate the city's great asceticism.and to share the beauty of our music with everyone. when we play with your music transcends beyond entertainment the audience loves us to and they smile and the sparkles in their eyes all translate they are happy to have us there. when i see what art means to the audience i'm truly overwhelmed. we are vocalizing the story of people who haven't had the chance to tell their own under the communist chinese regime. however the projection in the cherry blossom parade makes me wonder where are the political and artistic freedom and tolerance and diversity and acceptance the city is supposed to be so
5:31 pm

5:43 pm
tlc's. i've never once seen the results of a background check. that is because the background check which is fingerprint base is conducted by the regulator. sf mta, not the cab company receives the results of the cab company. they give the company a simple yes or no. so in san francisco we have the best of both worlds. positive id of the applicant through fingerprints and no opportunity for the employee to discriminate against early convictions juvenile arrest or so on. again, that is only because the agency sees the results of the background check and not the employer. that is what you ought to recommend to the cpuc. that they adopt
5:44 pm
for san francisco's fair chance standards and the cpuc itself conduct the background checks just as ff mta does in san francisco. this is an opportunity for you not only level the playing field between pnc's and taxis but it is also an opportunity to promote san francisco values by asking the cpuc to apply fair chance standards statewide. so i hope you vote yes on the item before you and 59. >>thank you, next speaker please. sfgtv. >>i am very glad that donald trump is going to go against hillary clinton. he will absolutely kill that woman
5:45 pm
during debate. just take what's going on in red china. the have already killed over 1,000,000 1/2 of these peoplein china and you haven't said anything about you should stand up for what is right. my bible tells me in revelation chapter 20 that before judgment day statement will be used for little caesar and i believe that god will make this come. in the me just read this to you. >>[reading bible verse] >>the lord spoke on to moses saying bring forth him that have cursed without the camp
5:46 pm
and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head and let all the congregation stone him leviticus. now people don't realize who jesus is. jesus came into this world and he said don't think that i have come to destroy the five books of moses and the other prophets i came not to destroy them but to fulfill them because as i say to you as heaven and earth pass not one job or to the will pass from the law to all be fulfilled. during the seven file the bible talks about stones from heaven and its figurative language but it's talking about jesus and people realize it's not mohammed up there it's not buddha it's jesus christ.
5:47 pm
>>[timer dings] >>thank you, next speaker please. >>tom gilberti, i spent the last five weeks talking about insurance buses for uber and a company spending $110 million a year losing $110 million every year when they can make a killing very soon after they don't need the drivers. while it might be cpuc's responsibility, my name mean nothing but your names mean a lot. you represent the sidewalks and the trees in your districts. you need to represent the people in your districts the $5 million insurance gets easily cut by the lawyers in the hospital bills and if
5:48 pm
there are multiple victims that gets shared. we don't need independent contractors protecting the pockets. i hope that you can move on that 5 million goes quickly if you're a parent or a child especially in the city. guns on police if wearing a gun equates with rising expectancy with using it and you combine that with racism that were seeing on the television that were seeing all the time now we can reduce some of the guns and we can start with the 10 year veterans that have never lifted their gun out of their holsters or fired a we need those mentors to
5:49 pm
help ourpistol or shot a bullet and we need those mentors i think that's a beginning argument and thank you kindly for invocation >>thank you next speaker please. >>mme. pres.-- i am in north american activists. i'm struck by the month the last month or two how much the national debates and arguments are mirroring our own little differences here between the sixth and the five and the five and the six and i am uncomfortable. it it's not a good thing. i think we saw a republican party that was in disarray and unfortunately we saw a democratic party that was our also in disarray. i am not too certain if there is anything that is going to come good of it but i am somewhat disturbed by the
5:50 pm
idea of the numerous asian chuck sumerization i think that people have described it as kabuki government but we never recognize that we are a minority party in america and we worked in an organized way and a focused way and so on. and i don't know if you're really going to have a vacation until next week but whenever comes. thank you next speaker please is there anyone also like to speak at public comment?seeing no other members of the public that would like to provide public comment at this time, public comment is now closed . seeing no other members of the public that would like to provide public comment at this time, public comment is now closed .

6:34 pm
talk abouthour. >> good morning, everyone and welcome to the people's palace and i'm here this morning to announce yet another milestone in our city's commitment to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by and people will work this fourth of july weekend we are celebrating our countries birthday but recognizing in the celebration throughout the weekend people like the people had that are standing with me are working whether the restaurants or hotels or health care workers and others and and we all feel for working people
6:35 pm
that is hard in our expensive city to survive unless you have a december sent wage that's why a couple of years ago i destined or joibd the board of supervisors full board of supervisors to place before the voters an $15 an hour minimum wage and people that work in all those industries we did it together and we're celebrating because today it goes from $12.25 an hour to $13 and up to 15 and after that cpi takes over i want to remind everybody this city was brought together with our labor unions and your working families made up of all the exit are represents our city and got this done in a strong collaboration with everyone and showed not only the cities
6:36 pm
around the bay area but the state of california if we got together and thought about people's lives what glosses the challenges every day we can get this done for them i think we're happy here to see the wages go up are rehappy yeah, we'll have more to celebrate in addition to, of course, the bitter of our nation and things we enjoy we picked this date it is a significant move and i also want to say that we know that our workforce all those people's here they are still an affordability gap so this is going to help people he you go that suggest that a lot of people are working two jobs to support their families we want to celebrate those moms we're all ushth together to help them but for also myself and mayor libby schaaf of oakland that
6:37 pm
recognizes our workforce is more regional than ever do more than benefit the residents that work in our city and so we joined. >> today and cities that are committed along with cities like new york and seattle and los angeles and portland and the others also raised their minimum wage we want to the state of california to do the same thing because what could happen i think all the labor advocates know and people that we raised our minimum wage just and ourselves in the city of san francisco or just in oakland we would probably be golden state talent that belongs to where everybody lives and not as affordable to them as it is to those we're helping so mayor libby schaaf and along with the united health care workers started a process and emigrate hundreds of thousands
6:38 pm
of snatches set the minimum wage higher of $15 an hour tour the state of california in uniting all the cities with the labor unions and workforces and people good minded across the region we got the governors attendance and the state of california attendance such that a few months ago governor jerry brown signed the legislation to raise the states entire minimum wage for everyone for $15 an hour over a period of time those movements wouldn't happen unless we place the needs of working-class families that work hard to build that consensus i'm here to join in the celebration and here to say that i'm going to be working this weekend as well as in addition the celebrating but also acknowledge the people that always serve us at the hotels and restaurants
6:39 pm
and people that are working the janitorial and building maintenance and all working class in the city we're there to be of help this will be consistent raising the minimum wage to attack affordability challenges is part of solution paid parental leave is part of the solution making sure that we work so that no one is a theft of their wages that's why your head of the department the labor enforcement is joining us with the advocates of people that earn those wages i'm saying they earn every single penny they deserve to make sure they get it in their hands that's why we announce these and make sure that everybody is prepared adequately ahead of time to make sure those wages are paid and wage theft we
6:40 pm

the appropriate protocol in place i would like to make some suggestions to make sure that we modify in a responsible way the item that is before us. we have two minor amendments that have been distributed to you both of them are on page 4. i will read them into the record. first i would like to remove the clause lines 3 through seven completely which reference the second amendment and the final resolve clause found in lines 20 through 21 which will move the second half of the sentence of these protocol these will allow the negotiations to move forward and the protocols continue to move forward this is a simple and straightforward amendment jillian gillett is here to answer any questions that you may have we have r representatives hear from the staff and this is as per

>> i'm sorry mr. let a few of my colleagues could not hear you and you please repeat that and speak into the microphone. >>thank you supervisor peskin. >>when would the protocol be achieved and why should we vote for this before the protocol is in place. supervisor in order to accommodate caltrans schedule
8:17 pm
, for those interviewed a protocol like this i'm not sure to the answer to that because this is pending additional review. >>so in regard to my previous question why should we review this before the protocol is in place? is this in reference to the caltrans protocol? >>hi, katy- with caltrans and i have been working with our partners since that time and we also saw the amendments today and we feel very important that the mo
8:18 pm
you needs to move forward today part of the commitment and the timing on this would expire before the end of the month the other partners have taken action on this and all of them unanimously and so we are happy to take questions and we would appreciate your timely vote today because we feel it is important to move this vote for word. >>to the representative from caltrans, respectfully you haven't really answered the question as to number one why the protocol is being removed to the resolution that is in front of us and number two, what is the negotiation that is taking place relative to the protocol? we are signing a blank check here gran to mr.
8:19 pm
perkins and on top of this $60 million that we've already committed i think respectfully you owe the legislative branch of government an explanation and maybe mr. perkins if you feel you can answer this,-- and i don't want to delay this but i want to go into this with our eyes wide open because we are committing ourselves to a blank check for $16 million that we have not identified and i don't understand and i don't think that any of the members-- and i won't put words in your mouth but we don't understand exactly how were moving the protocol and when it is going to change and what it will change by and what it means.
8:20 pm
>>thank you, >>this is being removed by the request not of caltrans. we are finding out about this around the same time as you are and so-- oh, would you like to jump in? i would like to also refer to the san francisco da who is been part of this process. >>i am going to recognize before you respond for supervisor wiener to respond. >>the reason this r is being replaced by a stronger and better protocol is that we don't believe this protocol is adequate and as we've been discussing how we can have better oversight, we saw with the recent situation with the translation powers
8:21 pm
authority that the commission stepped in with greater oversight and we ended up having to backfill a significant change because that oversight had listed earlier and that was an independent entity and we had the city stepped in we want to have that oversight now and normally we might hold this until after the break to put this in but there is a significant timing issue here that if we don't approve this there could be ramifications with the federal funding and if we ramifications by the end of this year and i had a deal leah and there might be
8:22 pm
ideally a more beefed-up protocol and they might be passing it with the existing language and we believe the existing language is not an adequate protocol andwe would note that we are agreeing to what we believe is not a good oversight and so, it is our view that we need to put better oversight in and eight is not an ideal situation but we feel that this is the best oversight given the circumstances. >> supervisor peskin did you want to give a response?/ >>thank you mme. supervisor.
8:23 pm
there is no question we would like to get the full funding agreement in prior to the obama administration in place and although i have no doubt that the next administration in place will honor that commitment and i would like to know what would the difference be and what is the timeline around the protocol and insofar as it is highly likely that we will have a special board meeting next week and i don't know what the
