We can really just chalk up this next story to California being California in the most California way.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom gave his State of the State address on Wednesday to a joint session of the California Legislature and told the predominantly controlled by Democrats body that of a new proposal that would allow doctors to write out prescriptions for housing as part of a five-point plan to combat California’s homelessness situation.

Newsom proposed a “once-in-a-generation” Medi-Cal reform, which includes a $695 million budget request, according to Newsom's speech and the Sacramento Bee.

“Health care and housing can no longer be divorced. After all, what’s more fundamental to a person’s well-being than a roof over their head?” Newsom said during his speech. “Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin or antibiotics.”

Newsom based his proposal on his claim that “ten million Californians, one in four, suffer from some type of behavioral health condition.”

Here’s video of Newsom’s remarks concerning doctors being able to write housing prescriptions:
