A New Price Tag For L.A.'s Homeless Crisis

Hosted by

In a new report, the city’s top financial adviser says it’s going to cost to nearly $2 billion to house our homeless over the next 10 years. City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana says it’ll take at least $1.85 billion to house the 26,000 people who live on L.A.’s streets over the next decade, and that most of the money should go to new housing. It sounds like a tall order and it’s up to our elected officials to decide how to fill it. We get the mayor’s reaction.
