Homeless Camps O-K'd - (SALEM) -- A House committee in the Oregon
Legislature has O-K'd a plan to allow cities to build two campgrounds for
homeless people... within their urban growth boundry. The bill gives
approval for wood-framed, domed, tent-like structures for people who cannot
get into other shelters. The idea is to provide a place for families who
cannot be together in other shelters. There would be a limited time they
could stay in the shelters. The bill may have tough sledding in the full
House, because several members say it offers no solutions for the
homeless... and only prolongs their problems.

And the homeless can organize! Gota love it.
