Sen. Kamala Harris has filed a comprehensive housing bill that would provide a nationwide moratorium on evictions, prevent rent increases or credit reporting on evictions, and provide a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction. Politico covered the release of the bill.
This bill joins a number of other federal bills that would provide federal funding for cities/states that enact a right to counsel.
