The 12X Employee Travel & Expenses in Banned States dashboard enables departments to identify instances of employee travel and related expenses that violate Chapter 12X of the Administrative Code. Subject to certain exceptions, Chapter 12X prohibits the City from funding travel to states on the Covered State List under Article I or under Article II.



On October 14, 2016, the Board of Supervisors enacted Chapter 12X of the Administrative Code (Ordinance No. 189-16, file No. 160425), which prohibits city-funded travel and City contracts involving states with certain anti-LGBT laws.



On August 9, 2019, the Board of Supervisors enacted an ordinance amending Chapter 12X (Ordinance No. 200-19, file No. 190658). The ordinance moved the existing provisions concerning states with anti-LGBT laws into Article I and created a new Article II, which prohibits city-funded travel and City contracts involving states with laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus.



Each department is required to maintain departmental determinations of non-applicability, exception, or waiver. Maintaining these determinations ensures your department is prepared to file the annually required report, with the City Administrator, that summarizes all Contracts and the basis for inapplicability, within 30 days of the end of the fiscal year. If you have questions about City-funded travel, you are also encouraged to consult the Controller's Office Accounting Policies & Procedures Manual and contact your department's CFO or Finance Director.
