to compassionately clear homeless encampments

WHAT?           Jones will promote his bipartisan measure Senate Bill 31, which prohibits homeless encampments near the sensitive community areas of schools, daycare centers, parks, and libraries. Additionally, the bill requires enforcement officers to give a 72-hour notice before a sweep, and requires enforcement officers to provide information about sleeping alternatives, homeless and mental health services, and homeless shelters. Over 2,000 Californians have signed a petition in support of SB 31.

The measure is up for hearing in the California Senate Public Safety Committee following the press conference at 9:30am in the Swing Space Building, 1021 O Street, Room 2200.

WHY?              

California has 30% of the nation’s homeless population yet only makes up less than 12% of the U.S. total population. Sadly, California’s homelessness crisis has become a public health and safety crisis. Modeled after a recent measure passed by the City of Los Angeles, Leader Jones’s bipartisan bill will help compassionately clear encampments and help connect homeless individuals to services they desperately need. SB 31 specifically protects sensitive community areas closest to our most vulnerable population—our children who go to schools and daycare centers, play in parks, and read books at libraries. 

The bipartisan SB 31 is principal coauthored by Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) and coauthored by Senators Bill Dodd (D-Napa), Brian Dahle (R-Bieber), Roger Niello (R-Fair Oaks), Janet Nguyen (R-Huntington Beach), Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh (R-Yucaipa), Kelly Seyarto (R-Murrieta), and Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita).
