Spying wave of evictions, House Democrats call for Wolf to extend moratorium to year's end

Democratic lawmakers from across Pennsylvania have asked Gov. Tom Wolf to give renters another five months without facing the threat of eviction.

The letter, written by Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, a progressive from Philadelphia, and signed by 43 of her House colleagues, was sent to Wolf Monday.

It calls for Wolf to extend his COVID-19 inspired moratorium on eviction and foreclosure until Dec. 31, 2020. It is set to expire on Friday, July 10.
