SB 791 - This act provides that a political subdivision located within a charter county or St. Louis City shall, in conjunction with any law enforcement agency and local continuum of care within its boundaries, develop an ordinance, order, or policy relating to homeless individuals which shall establish an encampment support team who shall notify homeless individuals of any relocation to temporary shelters or housing.
