Protections against evictions and foreclosures advance in the Senate

Legislation was heard this week to protect tenants and residents from being evicted or having their house foreclosed on during this COVID-19 crisis. While the $30 million Senate Republicans appropriated in their version of the bill falls short of the $100 million that Senate DFLers believes is necessary to address to address housing security issues for Minnesotans across the state, the bill is an important first step.

No foreclosure will be permitted to be declared during the pandemic, and we will continue working tirelessly to ensure Minnesotans can meet their basic needs and have economic security during these tumultuous times by advocating for the full $100 million contained within the House version of the bill.
