Ok, first off, the sponsor is the bill is Rigel Robinson. That sounds pretty gendered to me. Why doesn't he change his name and worry about the beam in his own eye before the mote in others?
First off his document directs the city MANager to do some cost assessments on implementing a small part of their bullshit.
It also says that city staff should develop a timeline and financial plan for impleMENting a proposed change to forms. Are they implying that it's men's role to implement things by using that language?
