Los Angeles County Declares State of Emergency over Homeless Crisis

 

Los Angeles County Tuesday approved a motion to declare a state of emergency over the region's homeless crisis.

Officials in Los Angeles County Tuesday approved a motion to declare a state of emergency over the region's homeless crisis. 

The declaration, officials say, will expedite supportive and material services for people who are unhoused.

The emergency declaration, introduced in late December, and was formally green-lit by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors in a unanimous vote Tuesday. 

It came just about one month after a similar, citywide emergency declaration was enacted by new L.A. Mayor Karen Bass immediately after taking office. 

Leaders in the nearby city of Long Beach have drafted their own proposal to address homelessness there, CBS News reported.
