Thanks to The Bay City Beacon for writing about Assembly Bill 932, authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting and signed by Governor Jerry Brown this week. The state bill will address homelessness in California by expediting the approval of local homeless shelters on public land under the declaration of a shelter crisis.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“As of the latest count, San Francisco has 7,499 homeless residents, with 4,353 unsheltered. According to Sherilyn Adams, Director of Larkin Street Youth Services, over 80% of the City’s homeless youth are without shelter.”
