 AN ACT to establish the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act of 2020

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  This act shall be known and may be cited as the "COVID-19
 housing relief and recovery for all act".
   § 2. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that a serious
 public emergency exists in the state of New York due to  the  impact  of
 the global outbreak of novel coronavirus, COVID-19, which as of the date
 of  this  legislation,  created destabilized housing, loss of employment
 and income, closure of businesses and schools, and  greatly  exacerbated
 financial  insecurity  in the state of New York. The legislature further
 finds that it is currently impossible  to  accurately  assess  the  full
 scope,  duration,  and  severity of impact this public emergency has and
 will have on the residents of New York and that,  in  response  to  this
 crisis,  on March 7, 2020 the executive declared a 'State Disaster Emer-
 gency' which has put extraordinary constraints on individuals, families,
 homeowners,  not-for-profits,  residential  housing  cooperatives,   and
 local,  state,  and federal agencies. The legislature further finds that
 the loss of employment,  illness  and  deaths  caused  by  the  COVID-19
 outbreak  have  rendered many individuals and families unable to pay for
 the costs of housing and other life necessities. The legislature further
 finds that safe and affordable housing is  a  key  measure  of  positive
 individual, family, and public health outcomes.  The legislature further
 finds that without government intervention, individuals and families who
 are  unable  to  pay  the costs of housing will be displaced, which will
 result in an increase in families who are cohabiting with  one  or  more
 other families and an increase in the population of unhoused individuals
