he cares about is his bottom line. >> his only lifeline right now is the eviction moratorium but that is expiring. assembly member david chu's bill ab 14-36 would extend the moratorium until april of 2021. to be eligible, tenants would have to prove that they're impacted by covid-19 and helps landlords too. the bill offers mortgage forbearance for landlords of small properties for the next 12 months of six months for those with buildings with five or more units. >> we cannot allow a massive wave of evictions, this could be catastrophic for coronavirus spread as well as homelessness. >> his bill is currently in committee and he expects there could be some movement on the bill today. keep sending your stories and ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and see all of susie's reporting on our website. susie steimle. the san francisco municipal transportation agency announced late fees for citations will be
