Legalizing prostitution in San Francisco on agenda at next board meeting


A San Francisco lawmaker is backing a plan by sex-worker advocates and some  residents to create a sanctioned red-light district in the city.

City Supervisor Hillary Ronen wants to lift criminal penalties from the sex trade altogether and is turning to state lawmakers in Sacramento for assistance, the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting.

Ronen, the representative for District 9 which includes the Mission District neighborhood, is drafting a resolution that would urge state legislators to write a bill that would legalize sex work. 

State Assembly Member Matt Haney, (D) San Francisco, said he would not consider supporting he bill.
