` California Plan to Spend $600 Million to Build Houses for Homeless Veterans ‘

#AceFinanceNews – CALIFORNIA – June 04 – California residents have voted for a plan to spend $600 million to build houses for homeless veterans.

The state has the highest number of ex-servicemen without a roof in the US – about 25 percent, or 19,000 homeless veterans.

After voters backed the plan in a primary election on Tuesday, the state will sell bonds to build apartments and temporary shelters for qualifying veterans or those recovering from physical injuries or mental health issues, Reuters reported.
