Portland City Council Approves Camping Ban

(Portland, OR) -- Portland City Council has approved a ban on homeless camping in most parts of the city. The ban takes effect July 1st. Commissioner Carmen Rubio was the lone vote against the measure. She says it criminalizes homelessness and the city doesn't have locations where the campers can go. Mayor Ted Wheeler says it's a step in the right direction and they're opening more shelter space and temporary city sanctioned camp sites. When the ordinance takes effect, illegal campers will get two warnings before they face criminal penalties.
