Pressley Blasts Corporate Money Preventing Life-Saving Extension of Eviction Moratorium

“Renters may not have a multi-million-dollar PAC behind them, but they have a growing number of Members of Congress in their corner.”

WASHINGTON – September 10, 2021 – Today, in a House Financial Services Committee hearing, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) reiterated her calls for an extension of the federal eviction moratorium and sharply criticized the National Association of Realtors for standing in the way of an extension that would save lives, noting that the National Association of Realtors PAC donated nearly $4,000,000 during the 2020 election cycle, making it the top PAC donor to 2020 Democrat and Republican candidates.

The Congresswoman also implored federal housing agencies to enact their own eviction moratoriums to keep residents of federally backed properties safely housed.

Rep. Pressley has led efforts in Congress to extend the federal eviction moratorium as a matter of economic, public health, racial justice. In July, she organized in solidarity with Congresswoman Bush and other progressive colleagues to urge the Administration to act unilaterally to extend this protection—efforts that resulted in a new targeted CDC eviction moratorium. Last month, following the Supreme Court ruling striking down the moratorium, she led her colleagues in calling on Congressional leadership imploring them to swiftly pass legislation to extend the federal eviction moratorium for the duration of the pandemic.
