16 Dec Should Homeless Be Banned From Public Camping?
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is intimidating to overturn a new Austin policy that permits camping in public areas, including sidewalks. The governor said almost any strategy is superior to allowing people to camp out on places like Congress Avenue. Coming to talk about Austin city itself, the policy says, public camping is legal- except in parks, as long as a person does not endanger the health or safety of another person or themselves or make usage of such area unreasonably inconvenient or hazardous. Proponents favor this law with a thought that the homeless given more rights than property owners under new camping policy
Opponent says that the new policy will shift the focus of law enforcement from activities to conduct.
