LA City Hall Takes on the Homeless

Hosted by

LA's homeless population has increased by 12% according to the Homeless Services Authority. The City Council has established an ad hoc committee on homelessness, which will hold its first meeting tomorrow. Meantime, the Council has tentatively approved two new ordinances making it easier for authorities to break up encampments — and harder for homeless people to keep track of their possessions. José Huizar represents the 14th Council District, which has more homeless people than any other. He's also chair of the new ad hoc committee on homelessness.
