California's Proposition 2 would finance a $2 billion bond for homeless housing using revenue from California's "millionaire tax" passed in 2004 to fund mental health services. Advocates of the proposition argue that many mentally ill people also face homelessness and that stable housing is key to effective treatment. But opponents of Proposition 2 believe it diverts funds from treatment services and benefits developers more than the mentally ill. Forum hears from both sides of the debate.
