CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Representative Wendell Gilliard is pushing a bill that he has submitted to Governor Nikki Haley for approval concerning homelessness.

The bill hopes to require each county to publish and distribute a document that identifies areas where a homeless on needy person may go to receive shelter, health care, food and other assistance.

The bill also requires the document to be distributed to those in need by local law enforcement officers.

This bill will take effect upon approval by the Governor.
