State Senator Josh Becker Issues Statement on California’s Extension of Eviction Moratorium
SACRAMENTO – “Extending the eviction moratorium until this summer will greatly help tenants and small landlords who have been slammed by the pandemic. The protections currently in place were set to expire at the end of this month. The agreement announced by the Governor and legislative leaders today would extend the strongest eviction protections in our nation until June 30. This assistance is key in aiding people whose housing is threatened and who have been able to pay only a portion of their rent. I look forward to the plan coming to the Legislature for a vote.
“The Governor also shared the great news that California plans to swiftly deploy our state’s $2.6 billion share of the latest federal stimulus bill. The aid is targeted for income-qualified tenants and landlords who choose to receive direct rental assistance in exchange for forgiving prior rental debt. This is a strong incentive for landlords to participate.” – State Senator Josh Becker, D-Peninsula.
