Following is the amended version of this bill which replaces the original bill.

It is my own amendment, and it is friendly.

Care For Those In Need Act

Section 1

The Northeast government shall ensure that the Northeast Region has adequate

Community kitchens
Homeless shelters
Women's shelters
Teen shelters
LGBTQ teen shelters

to provide the necessary aid for those in need of these services.

Community kitchens shall be provided for those who have fallen on hard times and who require meals provided for a time.  

Homeless shelters shall be provided for those who fall on hard times and who require refuge for a time.  

Women's shelters shall provide temporary refuge and support for women escaping violent or abusive situations, such as rape and domestic violence.  It is recognized that if the woman has young children, that they shall likely be with her at the shelter, and shall as well be provided refuge and support at the shelter.

Teen shelters shall provide a safe environment for abused teens and a place that can ensure that their physical and mental health is not at risk.

LGBTQ teen shelters shall provide a safe environment for abused LGBTQ teens and a place that can ensure that their physical and mental health is not at risk.    

Section 2

The Northeast government shall provide an initial budget of $250,000,000, divided at $50,000,000 for each program  

Allocation of this budget will be as follows

Community kitchens      $60,000,000
Homeless shelters         $60,000,000
Women's shelters          $60,000,000
Teen shelters                $35,000,000
LGBTQ teen shelters      $35,000,000



Mr. Blair, please look at this possible amended version for this bill and let me know what you think.

Representatives, please see the following further amended version of this bill.

Mr. Blair, in your view, should the LGBTQ shelters have the same budget as the Teen shelters?  What I am trying to get at is are there as many LGBTQ shelters required as there are Teen shelters required?  I do not know the statistics of the numbers of at risk teens generally as compared to the numbers of at risk LGBTQ teens.  What do you think?  You seem to be more familiar with these statistics.

Mr. Blair, please look at this possible amended version for this bill and let me know what you think.

Representatives, please see the following further amended version of this bill.

My final amendment.

I have read the LGBTQ population is estimated at as high as 6%, so I have therefore allocated 10% of the budget for that initiative.

I reject that amendment, this sounds like something from the 1980's.

The whole point of government is to protect the most vulnerable in society. LGBT shelters per head will cost more money, because of the nature of them. LGBT teens are 4x more likely to end up homeless, they're more likely to be assaulted, they're more likely to get HIV and they're more likely to be turned away from shelters.
