Rubio, Hagerty Introduce Respect State Housing Laws Act

Feb 7, 2024 | Press Releases

In response to the economic uncertainty amid the COVID pandemic and lockdowns, a 30-day notice to vacate requirement was put in place under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020. This federal regulation was not intended to be permanent, yet it still stands today, creating legal confusion for renters and landlords nationwide.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) introduced the Respect State Housing Laws Act to eliminate the federal requirement and allow states to, once again, determine their own housing guidelines. 

  • “The nationwide mandate for a notice to vacate is obsolete. I’m proud to introduce the Respect State Housing Laws Act, which strips away federal overreach, restoring eviction notice policies to the states, where they rightfully belong.” – Senator Rubio

Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives.
