SACRAMENTO — Every homeless person in California would have a right to a bed year-round under a statewide “right to shelter” policy proposed by Sen. Scott Wiener.
The San Francisco Democrat announced SB48 on Wednesday, although key details of the bill — including how much the added shelters will cost, how they will be paid for and who will be responsible for ensuring enough beds are made available — will not be worked out until at least next year.
The article goes on to state the following:
Wiener’s bill calls for the Legislature and stakeholders to work together to create the policy. Wiener said Tuesday that he hopes to have a finished bill in 2019, but that it’s possible he’ll need to work on it the following year as well.
I introduced SB 48, to create a right to shelter in CA. Too many places have limited/no access to shelter for homeless ppl. Shelter isn’t the ultimate solution – permanent housing is – but shelter is key to helping people off the streets. We must do more. https://t.co/aM180cTPOk
