The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is voting on whether to give businesses tax breaks for hiring felons who have done their time.

The controversial plan, which would offer city businesses a $10,000 tax break per ex-offender hired, was passed by the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee this week by a 2-1 vote.

The plan is being backed and pushed by current supervisor and Sheriff-elect Ross Mirkarimi. He says he does not see the bill as a reward for felons but instead a way to cut crime in the City but keeping felons off the street.
