LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors have approved a motion to draft three potential tax measures for the November ballot to increase funding to addresses homelessness.

The board directed Chief Executive Officer Sachi Hamai to present proposals at the July 12 meeting for a parcel tax, sales tax increase or marijuana tax.

“Now is the time for the board to identify an ongoing funding stream to put before voters in November that can finance the strategies to meaningfully prevent and reduce the number of homeless in communities across the county,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who authored the motion.
