California could sue cities over homeless plans under proposed law

California cities could face lawsuits for failing to follow through on plans to dramatically reduce homelessness under a proposal from San Francisco Democrat that aims to help end the humanitarian emergency by 2029. Assembly Bill 816 would first require the Department of Housing and Community Development and local governments to complete a “gaps and needs analysis” to identify what resources are available and what’s needed to tackle the problem. By 2023, agencies and city officials would have to submit proposals that detail plans to reduce homelessness by 90% by the end of the decade, with an emphasis on racial and ethnic disparities in the community. The bill would establish a “homelessness inspector general,” who could then pursue legal action against the state and local governments should they fail to follow through on their commitments.
