$2-billion worth of supportive housing in California without new taxes!
Darrell Steinberg, former Senate leader and co-author of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), proposed a “no new money” plan to;
- provide permanent supportive housing for thousands of homeless mentally ill;
- provide robust mental health services for college students on all public college campuses; and
- alleviate overcrowded ERs.
Read Steinberg’s editorial on the Sacramento Bee on his proposal to adjust MHSA and comment below with your thoughts on this ambitious plan.
MHSA is the 2004 ballot initiative, Proposition 63, which imposed a 1% tax on personal income over a million dollars to fund mental health services in California.
