“There are an estimated 11,000 homeless veterans in California and even more experiencing housing insecurity or struggling to make ends meet and transition,” Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, said on behalf of the bill’s author Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks. “AB 411 will assist veterans who are homeless or who need affordable rental housing to secure housing and services for themselves and their families.”
