SF doubles rack fee

SF Mayor Gavin Newsom proposed to double newsrack fees from $30 to $60 a year from 30 August on.

The plan has been met by negative reactions from distributors and publishers. Smaller papers might be hurt while also other could be forced to cut down the number of racks. Less newspapers (dailies and weeklies) will be available for the public.

Three free dailies in SF are (partly) distributed through racks: the Examiner, the SF Daily Post and the SF Star. (SFPPC)
