San Francisco board of supervisors to vote on cashless ban

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on a new bill that would ban cashless brick-and-mortar stores and restaurants.

RELATED: Are cashless stores discriminating against the poor?

The proposed law exempts food trucks, pop-ups, rideshares and many professional services.

The measure's supporters say cashless merchants discriminate against the poor by requiring credit or debit cards for purchases that many low-income residents can't afford or can't get.
