Governor Signs Court Into Law

Wednesday, at a signing ceremony in San Jose, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law CARE Court – a proposal he launched back in March.  The new court system would make it easier to force mentally ill Californians into psychiatric treatment and housing.   The legislation easily received support from the Assembly and State Senate, but court battles could be looming.  The Southern California chapter of the ACLU says it expects to see challenges and regards the bill as being a “misguided plan”.  The next hurdle for the new law to cross is its implementation with all 58 California counties having to set up new systems before 2025.
