California weighs extending eviction protections past June

The state's ban on evictions for unpaid rent may be extended as the protections are set to expire on June 30.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom and lawmakers are negotiating whether to extend the state's ban on evictions for unpaid rent. Federal and California eviction protections expire on June 30.

Newsom has proposed using federal coronavirus aid to pay off all of the unpaid rent that people owe. But it will take time to distribute that money.

Some tenant advocacy groups want the nation's most populated state to extend eviction protections until the unemployment rate for low-wage workers reaches pre-pandemic levels.

But the California Apartment Association says landlords can't afford to wait much longer because many have gone without rent checks for more than a year.

Dry conditions, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive high fire danger and a Red Flag Warning across most of northern California Monday. Winds will diminish and temperatures will warm up on Tuesday. We'll stay dry and heat up later this week. Cooler temperatures then return for your weekend.
