SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will resume eviction and foreclosure proceedings on Sept. 1 unless the state Legislature agrees to extend the protections.

The Judicial Council of California voted 19-1 to end the temporary rules that had been in place since April 6.

State lawmakers are negotiating with Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom on a proposal that would halt most evictions for the duration of the pandemic.

But they have yet to reach a deal despite having five months to negotiate.

California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye on Thursday urged the Legislature and the governor to move quickly to “resolve this looming crisis.”
