OLYMPIA - The moratorium on evictions for people unable to pay rent was extended by one month, ending Oct. 31.

Gov. Jay Inslee proclaimed the extension calling it a "bridge" to a return of landlords being able to charge rent and late fees, and evicting people for non-payment.

The moratorium has been in place since Feb. 29, 2020.

The additional month is to allow the state to finish the creation of the eviction resolution pilot program and rental assistance program.
