Pelosi Laying Groundwork for House Vote on Extending Evictions Ban

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Pelosi Laying Groundwork for House Vote on Extending Evictions Ban” – below is their description.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is laying the groundwork for a possible House vote to extend Saturday’s expiration of a national moratorium on renter evictions, a move requested by President Joe Biden that Democrats say is desperately needed to keep families and children from the streets.

Republicans criticized the last-minute effort, saying the issue should have been resolved weeks ago. And members of both parties during a Rules Committee meeting Friday noted the effort was being met by aggressive opposition from real estate groups and bankers.

House Democratic leaders spent late Thursday and early Friday putting pressure on lawmakers to pass the bill, which would extend the moratorium until December. But it was unclear Friday morning whether they had the votes in the House. Some moderate Democrats have opposed extending the moratorium, and Pelosi could only afford three defectors if all Republicans vote against the bill.

“We’ll see,” Pelosi told reporters Friday morning when asked if she would bring up the bill. She added later that “this is something we will work out.”

The House is scheduled to leave Friday for a recess until Sept. 20.
