Voters may see hotel tax measure on November ballot 

San Francisco can expect to add a hotel tax initiative to the list of measures submitted for the November ballot. A coalition of teachers, health workers and concerned citizens on Tuesday plan to file a list of valid signatures to qualify a hotel tax measure for the November ballot. The group plans to meet at the steps of City Hall Tuesday 2 p.m., the day signatures are due for qualifying ballot measures. The City's ongoing budget deficit is expected to rise to $800 million in the next two years, and cuts cannot be the only solution, the group says. That's why the group is pushing the Hotel Fairness Initiative, will increase the tax on San Francisco hotel rooms by 2 percent and garner more tax dollars from online hotel-booking companies.
