Contact Your Legislators And Ask Them Not To Override The Governor's Veto On Eviction Bill SEA 148 During This COVID-19 Winter
 
As we enter into the heart of winter and one of the most dangerous periods of the pandemic, it is more important than ever that people are able to stay in their homes. Given the critical importance of rental housing to about a third of Hoosiers, especially during a continuing public health crisis, we can't afford to increase evictions and the resulting homelessness in Indiana. Please urge your state legislators NOT to overturn Gov. Holcomb's veto of Eviction Bill SEA 148 during this COVID-19 winter.
 
The bill provides broad language giving landlords the ability to overrule local guidelines regarding rental agreements. This would lead to increased evictions during the COVID pandemic. By vetoing the bill, Gov. Holcomb keeps in place protections to help families who have lost their jobs or are experiencing economic hardship from being kicked out of their homes during this cold and deadly time.
