Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal Urges Statewide COVID-19 Residential and Commercial Rent Freeze

“At a time when millions of Americans and tens of thousands of workers have lost their income, it is vital that we immediately suspend statewide the payment of residential and commercial rent. Together with an eviction moratorium, a commercial and residential rent-freeze will help to provide already-anxious New Yorkers with desperately needed peace of mind during this public health emergency, while enabling New Yorkers to prioritize spending their now incredibly limited resources on food and medicine for them and their families.”
