This just shows you how wacko San Francisco is!

Banning city employees from traveling to, or through Arizona.

That is so unconstitutional, it isn't funny.

I don't know where to begin about this stupid, lame Progressive thinking. Talk about controlling the citizens.


I guess if you work for the government, your going to have to give up your freedom to make your own choice.

It's probably a good idea with the extreme budget crisis in California and it's cities to keep the policians home and not having them spend their taxpayers' money in other states.

Is this just work related travel or are they trying to regulate what employees do in their own time?

Not just San Francisco, LA is thinking about a boycott as well. Hopefully, this will continue to spread.

Arizona can do what they want, until this law is found unconstitutional that is, but in the meantime...make them pay for it..

Plus - California is going to need to keep some of those state and local tax dollars for the big onslaught of foreign citizens about to arrive in California not only from all of Mexico and Central America but now also from Arizona.

They want them, they can now pay for them, but they'd better be careful how they tell the unemployed citizens that there's no more money for their unemployment checks.

Good point. However, as an alternative, the idiots in charge will probably send the employees to Las Vegas to gamble with taxpayer's dollars.

Wow talk about spin.
They're not banned. They just can't take paid vacations there.
I thought the right would be happy they're cutting down on big gubment worker paid vacations.

Nope, official business. Dang TV media! They made it sound as if it was on their own time too.
