SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a law that extends eviction protections through the end of June.
Newsom signed the law on Friday, one day after it was approved by the state Legislature.
Last year, Newsom signed a law that banned evictions for unpaid rent for tenants who paid at least 25% of their rent owed after Sept. 1.
The law Newsom signed Friday extends those protections through June 30.
The law will also use federal stimulus dollars to pay off 80% of some tenants' unpaid rent, but only if landlords agree to forgive the remaining 20%.
