New York lawmakers are expected to vote on extending the eviction moratorium to Jan 15.
The special session was called after the federal moratorium expired on Tuesday.
While lawmakers haven't started voting just yet, Senate Majority Democrats say they expect the measure to pass. However, not everyone supports the move.
The state GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy says "Extending the eviction moratorium, particularly while the state is sitting on billions in relief funds that haven't been distributed, is the height of incompetence and completely disregards the constitutional rights of property owners."
On Tuesday, Gov. Kathy Hochul promised relief, saying she aims to make sure both landlords and tenants get a clean slate.
