Ashby Votes Against Action from Downstate Progressives Which Threaten Housing Stability

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I-Castleton)

“Today, Assembly progressives again voted to extend the eviction moratorium, further exacerbating a forthcoming crisis in housing for the people of New York. By preventing any ability for our local property owners to recover nearly 18 months of back-rent, we have caused tremendous hardship for countless New Yorkers who continue to struggle to provide for their families. Further complicating the issue, is that many New York property owners are not eligible for the Federal relief programs which only apply to counties of greater than 200,000 residents.”

“I am working diligently with colleagues from both parties and all corners of our State to bring substantial and meaningful relief to our property owners.”
