Seattle City Council could lose its solution to homelessness crisis

The city of Seattle appears to be doing an about-face on the new employee head tax on businesses. The City Council approved the tax unanimously a month ago to generate money for affordable housing and homeless services.

KUOW's Sydney Brownstone explains what's at stake and what the council is discussing. We also talk to Lisa Daugaard, director of the Public Defender Association and one of the members of the task force that proposed the original head tax plan, and Jon Scholes, president and CEO of the Downtown Seattle Association.
