Again, in 2016, Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Jackie Speier hold the line in opposition to the Dog Mgmt Plan Draft Rule with their colleagues at Boards of Supervisors in Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo. With over 2300 pages of nonsense at a cost of over $1,000,000 to taxpayers, it is time we tell NPS enough is enough. Stop restricting our recreation and put their energy in far more important areas in other parts of the country that need their attention on our public park lands.

Agreed. We have taken extraordinary strides to green the city government's fleet, MUNI and taxicabs. They should all be, at least, biodiesel. Not even Uber, Lyft or Sidecar were made to require only hybrids, EV or CNG. Most of Uber black cars are big 8-cylinder gas guzzlers and plenty of SUVs, too. Also, there is a requirement of municipal public transportation that buses must have exhaust over the top of the roof. No tech or tour buses have this requirement.

So, hypocritical SF, we are. Require city services but not anyone else. Time to remove the Green City award and label from San Francisco. Who do we call?

Hi Bruce. Right on. In my district (3), where these buses have proliferated, there is currently a campaign for Supervisor - Aaron Peskin versus Julie Christiansen. You may want to consider contacting both to determine what they are willing to do. Last week, I attended a neighborhood meet 'n greet and spoke to Aaron Peskin about this very issue. He completely concurred (OK, he's a politician), but he does have a substantial track record of "green" activity - especially around MUNI. He said state law is a hindrance to solving this particular problem so a solution has to work within (around?) the boundaries of state law (or the state law has to be changed). I may join his campaign (never been involved in politics..a first here) to keep this issue on the radar and, ultimately, get it (and others?) addressed. I will also contact Assembly member David Chiu and State Senator Mark Leno to put this issue in front of them and demand action at the state level. The more people that do this, the better.
