Liberal Los Angeles Prepping To Force Hotel Owners To Give Rooms To Homeless

The liberals on the Los Angeles City Council have come up with a ‘solution’: passing an ordinance to house the homeless in empty hotel rooms.

If the ordinance does pass, “Each hotel shall communicate to the Department or its designee, in a form that the Department prescribes, by 2 p.m. each day the number of available rooms at the hotel for that night.”

President of the Northeast Los Angeles Hotel Owners Association ray Patel has shared the association members’ worries.

“It’s crazy, I can’t screen who ends up in my hotel rooms?” he said. “How do I protect my other customers and my staff?”

Over 126,000 signatures have been collected in support of the initiative by members of the Unite Here Local 11. And if the initiative is not outright supported, then members could make the decision to place it on the ballot.

FOX 11 received a statement from the Los Angeles City Attorney staff:

“This is a third-party sponsored ballot measure and our Office cannot comment on it before passage. I would ask the proponents what enforcement measures they are proposing.”

The initiative will be further discussed by the Council very soon, where they will decide to either approve it or place it on the ballot to be voted on in a future election. Regardless of what is decided, loud reactions are sure to come in response to the meeting.

‘Los Angeles Magazine’ had provided an update: The Los Angeles City Council rejected a proposal Friday morning…

The Los Angeles City Council rejected a proposal Friday morning that would force hotels to report vacant rooms, by 2 p.m. daily, so homeless people can use government vouchers to stay in them.

The ordinance was proposed by UNITE HERE Local 11, a union representing over 32,000 workers in California’s hospitality industry—perhaps most famously at Chateau Marmont and Dodger Stadium—which secured enough signatures for the council to vote on the measure.

According to a document released by the Office of the City Clerk last February, “The ordinance would create a program, subject to funding availability, to place unhoused individuals in vacant hotel rooms. A hotel would be prohibited from refusing lodging to program participants.”

The City Council was tasked today with voting either to adopt the proposed initiative ordinance, without alteration, or to adopt the ballot resolution to submit the proposed initiative ordinance, without alteration, for a public vote in the March 5, 2024 election

The City Council voted 11-1 in favor of the latter.
