Extension of federal and state bans on evictions may not be enough says a state lawmaker who proposes the state keep the ban through 2021.
“California is staring down an eviction cliff if we don’t extend it. People still can’t pay their rent,” California Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, told the Business Journal.
The current moratorium expires Feb. 1, 2021. Chiu is concerned much of the state’s population won’t be vaccinated until halfway through 2021 and possibly under shutdown orders. On Dec. 7, he introduced Assembly Bill 15.
