Next up: world peace…

Our vote for Most Ambitious Bill of 2005: Rep. Mark Miloscia's "House Bill 1810: Ending Homelessness in the State of Washington."

The bill tells a state agency, county governments and some cities to end homelessness within 10 years. It also requires an annual count of the homeless and would charge $10 more on any document recorded by a county auditor.

Most of the money would go to homeless shelters, rental assistance, eviction prevention programs and other support programs.
