The Biden White House is pushing for its $2.3 trillion infrastructure package that shows the dire shape of roads, bridges, the power grid and housing affordability.
Florida got a C grade.
“For decades, infrastructure in Florida has suffered from a systemic lack of investment. The need for action is clear,” the White House says.
“We don’t have a lot of work to do to persuade the American people that U.S. infrastructure needs major improvement,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said “The American people already know it.”
The Biden administration extended the federal eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021.
The CDC extended the moratorium on coronavirus-related evictions through June saving millions of Americans at risk of being kicked out of their homes or apartments.
It is the third time the moratorium has been extended.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to the nation's public health," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said. "Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings — like homeless shelters — by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19."
Ten million Americans are behind on their rent or mortgage payments, and five million people are at risk of being evicted from their homes, as Americans owe $57 billion in back rent.
The moratorium covers individual renters who earn less than $99,000 and couples that make less than $198,000.
It’s worth noting that the moratorium isn’t letting tenants off the hook. Once it’s lifted, back rent will still be owed. Contacting your landlord to see if they’ll work with you to set up a payment plan, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll be willing to meet you halfway as the landlord is not required to work with you.
The federal moratorium has been extended for almost a year now, and will likely be the last time it happens.
