What is the San Francisco Sunshine Ordinance?
Adopted by voters in 1999, the Sunshine Ordinance allows access to public records and gives the public a procedure to follow if, for some reason or another, they cannot access the records. The ordinance also strengthens open meeting requirements, which require meetings (that are open to the public) to be announced 72 hours in advance at a location close to the meeting place. These requirements also specify that the public can comment on any item on the agenda.
