Biden Revives the Eviction Moratorium with Unspent Money For Tenants and Landlords Already in the Pipeline
We begin with a revival of the CDC’s eviction moratorium via a Presidential Executive Order which apparently was in response to demonstrations on the Capitol steps by Congresswoman Cori Bush and others along with pressure behind the scenes from Speaker Pelosi. Joining us to discuss the new 60 day eviction moratorium following the expiration on Saturday of the original moratorium is Tamara Fucile, the Executive Director of the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee who previously served as Associate Director of Legislative Affairs at the Office of Management and Budget and as Deputy Staff Director for Senate Minority Leader Schumer’s Joint Economic Committee. We discuss what is causing the bottleneck that has plenty of unspent money for tenants and landlords in the pipeline making evictions unnecessary and whether Biden’s rental assistance extension will survive court challenges that will determine how long people can stay in their homes and not be on the streets exposed to a new Covid pandemic.
