California’s homeless crisis

 
July 26th 2016
 

Los Angeles County has voted to call for California State ‘declaration of emergency’ on the state’s homelessness crisis, reports the Los Angeles Times.

It is estimated that there are currently around 115,738 homeless people in California, with 47,000 of them living in Los Angeles County, according to the LA Homeless Services Authority.

The County has been lobbying for a change in California’s state law which would allow LA officials to force a special tax on locals who earn over $1 million.

This money would be used to help the homeless problem, but so far the plan has been rejected. It is hoped that the ‘emergency declaration’ will now encourage more Californian money and resources to be spent on the homeless problem.
