The state Assembly has advanced a Senate bill that proposes a guaranteed income for recent high school graduates who are experiencing homelessness. Under the measure, the graduates would receive a $1,000 a month stipend for five months. Sponsors say that would allow them time to enroll in college, start a vocational program or get a job. The bill would help 15,000 unhoused students in the state. It’s set to be heard next in an Assembly committee.
