SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) introduced new legislation to allow adjacent counties to establish joint multidisciplinary personnel teams (MDTs) to combat homelessness.

“We must allow and encourage counties to work more effectively to address homelessness by permitting information sharing on their homeless populations. Homelessness does not occur in a one-county vacuum, and counties must be able to work together to provide essential services,” said Assemblyman Gallagher.
