HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration is reiterating that the governor won’t extend Pennsylvania’s moratorium on evictions and foreclosures past Monday. Wolf’s office said it had explored the possibility that it could build off the Federal Housing Administration’s extension of its national moratorium protecting homeowners with FHA-insured single family mortgages. But they have since determined the governor can’t extend his executive order to protect people who aren’t benefiting from the federal moratorium. His office says lawmakers now need to act to extend it. Housing advocates predict a rush to Pennsylvania courthouses and a wave of evictions once the moratorium expires.
