Seven New Laws
September 28, 2021 (87 words)
The headline read: “California Governor Gavin Newsome proposes seven new laws to address homeless.” This is no doubt a well-meaning gesture on the Governor’s part. However, in trying to resolve lingering and/or worsening social problems, it’s unfortunate our elected officials have no other trick up their sleeve beyond adding even more complicated and minutely-detailed laws to the books.
Without knowing the specifics of any of Governor Newsome’s latest ideas, something tells me additional legislation is not really going to solve the lingering and worsening problem of homelessness.
