WASHINGTON – Today Representative Kevin Kiley (R-CA) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Grants Pass, Oregon v. Johnson. Rep. Kiley had led an amicus brief submitted to the Supreme Court by Members of the House from western states.

“Homelessness in California is a crisis and a tragedy, but today is a new day. A misguided lower court decision has caused the problem to grow much worse in recent years by tying the hands of local communities with an unworkable rule that exists nowhere else in the country.

“Today, the Supreme Court gave our communities back the ability to regulate homeless encampments in a commonsense way. This decision presents a chance to reclaim our public spaces, restore order, reduce crime, protect public health, and get homeless individuals the assistance they need,” said Rep. Kiley.
