The homeless problem has reached crisis level in the state. Mayors across the state are banding together to ask the Brown administration for $1.5 billion to tackle homelessness in their cities.
The coalition is made up of mayors from 11 of the biggest cities in the state, including Long Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and Anaheim.
Governor Brown has said that he wants to devote about $350 million to help fight homelessness. The governor has also called for a $2-billion bond for homeless housing on the November ballot.
