The state legislature has passed a bill that will put a statewide eviction moratorium in place until January 15th, 2022.
Both the Senate and Assembly approved the measure last night during a special session at the State Capitol in Albany.
The previous moratorium was in effect for over a year until it expired earlier this week.
The goal of the legislation is to help tenants and landlords who are struggling financially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor has already promised to speed up the process of getting funds to those who need it.
