Tell lawmakers to reject HB352 that puts vulnerable renters at risk.

HB 352 Hotel Safety Issues <[link removed]>?will be heard in Senate Judiciary Committee on?Tuesday, August?10, at?11:00 p.m. in Room 544 of the Legislative Office Building. This bill puts vulnerable tenants at risk just like the provision in HB 366. ?

The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront that thousands of North Carolinians reside in motels as their primary residence due to the state's ongoing affordable housing crisis. The proposed legislation would remove tenant protections for motel renters, protections that have been the law in North Carolina for 30 years. If passed, HB 352 will only worsen the housing crisis for families struggling to find housing by increasing our homeless population and straining public resources. ?

Tell lawmakers to reject legislation that would eliminate tenant protections for those living in motels. <[link removed]>

HB 352 would automatically reclassify all those staying in motels as "transient guests" for the first three months of their stay. This will allow motel owners and managers to treat tenants who complain about living conditions or are late with their rent as trespassers and forcibly remove them or have them arrested.?

In short, by removing decades-long recognized tenant protections the bill will force vulnerable community members into homelessness. The Senate Judiciary Committee will most likely vote on HB 352 soon.?

Write the?members of the NC Senate?Judiciary Committee?TODAY and ask them to reject this bill that will affect our most vulnerable.?
