SALEM, Ore. -- The Oregon Senate voted in favor of a bill that would give tenants, struggling with financial hardships due to the pandemic, more time to pay past-due rent.

Currently tenants have until July to pay back rent, but under the new proposed bill, tenants would have until Feb. 28, 2022.

The bill passed Wednesday with a vote of 25-5 and now moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.

Senate Bill 282 does not extend the current pandemic-related moratorium on evictions past June 30 and does not forgive back rent.
