Minnesota legislators split over money to prevent eviction 'wave'
April 23, 2020
Gov. Tim Walz has prohibited housing evictions during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, but homelessness could surge once the moratorium is lifted and Minnesotans face a backlog of overdue rents.
Legislators in both parties want to prevent mass housing loss by boosting financial aid to help people pay their housing expenses. But they clashed Wednesday over how much help the state can afford to give.
