ESCONDIDO —  State Sen. Brian W. Jones on Friday revealed details of a bill that would ban homeless encampments from public parks and near schools, libraries and other so-called sensitive areas.'California's current approach to homelessness is currently failing, and it's time that we try something new,' Jones, R-Santee, said at a press conference at Escondido's Grape Day Park, which often has seen homeless encampments. Jones was joined by former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Escondido City Councilmember Joe Garcia and others.
