Supes push through three ballot measures 

Perhaps supervisors are just saving the debate for later today when they discuss the proposed $6.5 billion budget plan?

In less than than 10 minutes this morning, supervisors signed off on three proposed ballot measures moving it to the full Board of Supervisors for consideration.

The Rules Committee held a special hearing Tuesday morning on a proposed November ballot measure that would strip Mayor Gavin Newsom of his sole power to appoint members to the Metropolitan Transportation Agency Board of Directors.

The measure will now be heard at today's full board meeting. Both proposed ballot measures for a foot beat patrol program - one that would supplant the mayor's sit/lie measure if it receives more votes - will go to the full board for consideration July 27.
