San Francisco— Today, Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) issued the following statement following San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Rafael Mandelman’s announcement to move forward legislation to implement SB 1045:  

“I am thrilled that San Francisco is moving to implement my bill, SB 1045, which will help some of our most vulnerable residents get the help they need. Today’s rollout means we are closer to getting people off our streets and into housing and services that will help them get healthy. I am grateful to Mayor Breed and Supervisor Mandelman for understanding that the faster we implement this tool, the faster we can help those suffering on our streets. I authored this bill to give cities like San Francisco an additional tool, and today’s step shows that cities are ready and eager to use this new tool to provide much needed help.”
