Consumer Protection Committee Chairman Senator Thomas Calls on the Unified Court System, Utility Companies to Suspend All Housing Evictions, Foreclosures, and Shut Offs During NY State of Emergency
Garden City, NY – In response to the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and a declared State of Emergency in New York State, Senator Kevin Thomas is calling on the Unified Court System and Utility Companies to suspend all housing evictions, shut offs, and foreclosures while a state of emergency remains in effect.
“As Chairman of the Consumer Protection Committee, the safety of New Yorkers are always my top priority. This pandemic has created anxiety and uncertainty amongst New Yorkers who fear both the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19.
That is why I am calling on the Unified Court System to suspend all housing evictions and foreclosures during this state of emergency in an attempt to alleviate economic and emotional stress. Evicting tenants impacted by uncertain markets and job losses is immoral and dangerous. I am also calling on utility companies to impose a moratorium on shutting off essential utilities including gas and electric for those who may fall behind on payments due to Coronavirus.
We need our local government to work proactively to identify ways to protect our most vulnerable residents during this uncertain time.”
