State Assembly and Senate Passed Bill that Bans Evictions Until August 31st

The state's eviction moratorium extension is headed to Governor Cuomo's desk.

The state Assembly and Senate passed a bill that bans evictions until August 31st.

Proponents say the extension will allow time for federal rent relief to get into the hands of struggling New Yorkers.

The commercial eviction ban would also be extended.

Renters across New York are in line to get a bit more relief.

The state Legislature has voted to extend the eviction moratorium until August 31st.

The measure allows people who have been affected financially by the COVID-19 crisis to hold off on paying their rent without the threat of being evicted.

Landlords have been critical of the moratorium, saying they're having a tough time paying their bills due to a lack of income.

The legislation is headed to Governor Cuomo's desk.
