An initiative to remove homeless camps from roadways needs more money to continue next year, according to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, after burning through $143 million in a little over a year.

"You can’t do this with zero dollars," Inslee, a Democrat, told KOMO News. "We’ll need the legislature in January to step up to increase funding so we can continue the progress we’re making."

Inslee's statewide Rights-of-Way Safety Initiative began in June 2022 with the goal of removing homeless camps from state property near roads and offering housing to the people living in the camps.

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

$143,000,000 / 1000 rehoused people = $143,000 per rehoused person.

A program with that abyssmal negative return on investment should not get another dime.

For that money, just buy each of them a used RV.
