NYSAR Continues to Call on Governor Cuomo to End Cold Call Ban
Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently issued another State of Emergency in New York State due to gun violence. As a result of being under a State of Emergency, licensees are again prohibited from making any cold calls. NYSAR sees no connection between acting to curb gun violence and the legitimate business practice of cold calling. NYSAR has launched a Call for Action asking the governor and state Legislature to lift the ban on cold calling now and decouple the statutory restrictions on cold calling as it relates to States of Emergency. Take Action now!
State Senate Introduces Bill to Extend Eviction Moratorium
State Senators have introduced a bill to extend New York’s eviction moratorium until October 31, 2021. NYSAR is strongly opposed to the bill and will continue to engage state lawmakers on the issue. This would apply to any “county experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels” of COVID-19. The state Senate is also scheduled to hold a public hearing in New York City on August 19 at 10 a.m. to examine the implementation of the state’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program. To watch the public hearing, click here.
