Gov. Newsom extends moratorium on evictions through June

Renters who found themselves hours away from losing their homes found some relief on Sunday.

The moratorium on evictions was set to expire but Gov. Gavin Newsom extended it through June 30.

The move bans evictions for tenants who pay at least 25% of the rent they owe.

The law also uses federal stimulus money to pay off 80 percent of some tenants' unpaid rent, but only if landlords agree to forgive the remaining 20%.
