Biden to Let Eviction Moratorium Expire Saturday

The Biden administration will let a nationwide moratorium on evictions expire on Saturday.

Lawmakers and advocates have pushed the president to extend the eviction ban, enacted to stop landlords from forcing out tenants behind in their rent due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Associated Press reported.

But Biden says his hands are tied by a Supreme Court decision last month prohibiting any extension beyond Saturday without congressional approval.

The eviction ban, first enacted as part of a massive coronavirus relief bill at the pandemic’s outset in March 2020, has been extended several times.

Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in June that the moratorium set to expire Saturday will be the final extension.

The Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey indicates that as of July 5, about 3.6 million Americans said they faced eviction in the next two months, AP reported.
