San Diego City Council plans to create a new ordinance requiring contractors to disclose whether they are working on President Donald Trump’s border wall, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.
At a recent budget committee meeting, council members voted 3-1 to have city officials draft an ordinance that would require contractors competing for city projects to disclose any past, present or planned bids or actual work on parts of the president’s promised border wall, according to the report.
It is still unclear whether disclosure will affect a contractor’s ability to get city work. Council president pro tem Barbara Bry, who supports the new disclosure ordinance, said:
“Trump’s border wall does nothing to promote San Diego’s robust economy and our positive international ties with Mexico. Our region is stronger because of our cross-border exchange with our neighbors to the south.”
