California Lawmakers Hoping to Double the State Budget Allocation to Help Homeless

 

Lawmakers are expected to approve a more than 138-billion dollar state budget that includes over 500-million to help the homeless. Included in the budget plan that is expected to be approved tomorrow is more than double the amount of spending on the homeless that was in Governor Brown’s May revised budget. The additional funds will be used to fund various programs, including emergency shelters and rent-relief for low income people. About 25 percent of the nation’s homeless population live in California, which amounts to over 130-thousand people.

    I don’t see any trash cans or porta potties. Why not? Then government will have to roust them and make them move on. Funny we can house rich people when they become homeless through fires.
