Democrats press Pelosi, Schumer to revive eviction ban

More than 60 House Democrats on Friday demanded that congressional leaders work to revive a national eviction moratorium, after the Supreme Court blocked a ban imposed by the Biden administration.
Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Cori Bush (D-Mo.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) were among those who led a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer pressing them to act with “the highest levels of urgency” to extend the eviction moratorium as part of an upcoming must-pass bill. Moderates including Reps. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) also signed the letter, which cited the threat from a recent surge in coronavirus cases thanks to the Delta variant.
“Millions of people who are currently at risk for eviction, housing insecurity, or face becoming unhoused desperately look to their elected representatives to implement legislation that will put their health and safety first and save lives,” they said.
