Region Seeing Great Strides in Economic Development, but Small Landlords Held Back By Eviction Moratorium

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

“The pandemic and the eviction moratorium have left many small landlords in a difficult situation where they are unable to pay their bills and property taxes because of tenants who have not paid their rent. The extension of the eviction moratorium only makes matters worse. Our region is facing great business and development opportunities. Improving the outcomes for both landlords and tenants is an important part of ensuring our regional economic recovery from the pandemic.”
