Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh sent a letter to Gov. Larry Hogan today, asking him to extend and expand on eviction protections.
The letter requests that Hogan implement a moratorium on evictions until Jan. 31 and provide more rental assistance.
“This is money that is, I believe, absolutely essential not just to the folks who are about to lose their homes, but to their landlords and everybody else,” Frosh said in an interview with WYPR.
The letter also asks Hogan to renew executive orders that protect Marylanders from debt collection and termination of utilities .
