Kentucky lawmakers introduced SB 264 to forbid an eviction moratorium during an emergency.
That means that during a pandemic — when 1 in 3 Kentuckians rent their homes — SB 264 would expose renters to eviction, and all of us to increased spread of COVID-19.
Kentuckians who rent their homes need more protections, not fewer.
Kentucky's outdated landlord-homerenter laws need to be modernized, not exacerbated by dangerous bills like SB 264.

I'm writing you to encourage you to reject Senate Bill 264 restricting the Governor's ability to protect people from eviction in emergencies. Evicting people during a pandemic is both wrong and dangerous. Evictions spread COVID-19, and not just to people who rent their homes. Evictions make everyone less safe right now.
Thousands of people have been infected with COVID-19 and died during this pandemic. Kentuckians who rent their homes need more protections, not fewer.
And because Kentucky's most 'modern' landlord-homerenter laws are almost 40 years old, our laws need to be modernized, not exacerbated by dangerous bills like SB 264. Vote no on this bill. It's both dangerous and immoral.
