“Democrats have worked tirelessly for this action, which is based on public health needs.  This brand new moratorium will provide time for the money allocated by Congress to flow, as it helps stop the spread of the virus which is worsening due to the delta variant and protects families and landlords.  I am especially pleased about what this means to the children who have had uncertainty about their housing, their health and their education.”
