Proposed CA Law Would Grant Homeless 'Right' to Urinate on Sidewalks

A California lawmaker has proposed a “Homeless Persons’ Bill of Rights” that would grant homeless people the right to urinate on sidewalks–which is described as a life sustaining activity–panhandle, and refuse the offer of a homeless shelter. 

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a San Francisco Democrat, introduced the bill, AB5, which would cancel out local ordinances. 

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco already “spends more than $200 million per year to house, treat and feed homeless people, who number between 5,000 and 10,000.” The measure would also protect: 

– Sleeping in public spaces such as sidewalks and parks

– 24/7 access to bathrooms, showers, water and clean syringes

– Car camping on city streets without restrictions

– “Life sustaining activities” such as urinating and collecting recycling trash

– Welfare cash payments

– Meditating or praying in public

– Panhandling

– Payment for possessions seized in a roust

– Right to refuse the offer of a homeless shelter

– Right to a lawyer in most encounters with the law
