Renter Evictions

Senate Bill Number: 
264

Senate Bill 264 would forbid an eviction moratorium during an emergency. That means that during a pandemic with many losing jobs and 1 in 3 Kentuckians rent their homes, SB 264 would expose renters to eviction and homelessness.

House Bill 570 is a broader bill though it also includes limits on the governor's authority to protect renters during an emergency.
