Gov. Newsom Signs Eviction Relief Bill Into Law
A law designed to prevent evictions was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom late last night. The measure protects tenants from being evicted for failing to pay rent between March and August of this year.
"COVID-19 has impacted everyone in California - but some bear much more of the burden than others, especially tenants struggling to stitch together the monthly rent, and they deserve protection from eviction," Gov. Newsom said shortly after signing the bill.
