Commissioner Diaz continues crusade against housing evictions during natural disasters

MIAMI – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz is sponsoring legislation urging the Florida Legislature to delay any pending evictions during and after hurricanes and other disasters.

Scheduled for a vote at the Feb. 4 County Commission meeting, Commissioner Diaz’s resolution urges the state to halt any residential eviction proceedings during a declared state of emergency and for 15 days thereafter.

Commissioner Diaz sponsored similar legislation last year.
