California Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday that he is seeking $750 million in part to help pay rent for people facing homelessness in the most populous state’s latest attempt to fight what he called a national crisis.
Newsom planned to sign an executive order Wednesday creating the fund, two days before he presents his second annual budget proposal to the state Legislature.
The state’s worsening affordable housing and homelessness problem has prompted anger and outrage. It has also drawn repeated criticism from President Donald Trump aimed at Newsom and other Democratic leaders.
