DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has announced an executive order banning late fees for renters in the state through the end of the year.
His office also vowed in the same announcement Thursday that a statewide eviction moratorium would come soon in a separate order. The governor’s order came after the Special Eviction Prevention Task Force released a 17-page report which recommended short- and long-term solutions to the state’s housing crisis spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. The Denver Post reports the order accounts for some of the task force’s short-term recommendations.
