SF nightclub legislation being considered 

Nightclubs in San Francisco that attract and allow violence could have their permits yanked by the Entertainment Commission under legislation being considered Monday.

The Public Safety Committee is schedule to vote on legislation being pushed by Supervisor David Chiu that would give the Entertainment Commission the authority to close down troubled nightclubs, a power that it currently does not have.

Mayor Gavin Newsom has talked about dissolving the Entertainment Commission and granting the Police Department power to shut down problematic clubs.

The latest example of nightclub violence happened July 11, when a 39-year-old man died after he was shot during a fight outside a dance cafe near Mission Bay.
