Bills On the House Schedule This Coming Week:

H.R. 6172: USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act of 2020
This bill is headed back to the House after modifications were made in the Senate.


Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act would suspend all such housing payments amid covid-19 national emergency.
Many states have issued moratoriums on eviction, and even suspended the collection of rent and mortgage payments during the pandemic. These payments are postponed, not cancelled outright. This bill, H.R. 6515, by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN5), would eliminate them altogether and instead create a federally funded relief package to get landlords and others the money they are owed.
Supporters say it responds directly to the housing crisis. Opponents say it should contain an income cap so that only those who are truly in need of help are eligible.
The bill has attracted 27 House cosponsors, all Democrats. It awaits a potential vote in the House Financial Services Committee. (202) 225-4247; FSCDems@mail.house.gov
