Supes' Monday Meeting on Entertainment Legislation Postponed

This just in: Discussion of a proposed overhaul of laws regulating city nightclubs due to take place at a Monday Board of Supervisors' meeting has been postponed.

The suggested revisions to the police code were originally scheduled to be taken up at Monday's meeting of the City Operations and Neighborhood Services committee, but were ultimately left off the agenda at the direction of committee chairman Bevan Dufty, according to committee clerk Victor Young. No word yet on why.

The legislation concerns the Entertainment Commission, a board of political appointees tasked with regulating city nightclubs. The commission has come under heavy fire recently for not cracking down on violent clubs; the legislation being debated would both give it stronger enforcement powers and subject it to stricter oversight.
