Kansas Governor Laura Kelly signed two new executive orders Monday, one of which temporarily prohibits mortgage foreclosures as well as residential or commercial evictions due to hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Kelly, Executive Order 20-61 is identical to a previous statewide mandate that had expired. The order prohibits "initiating any mortgage foreclosure or judicial proceedings, and any commercial or residential eviction efforts or judicial proceedings." Kelly said she would renew the order in two weeks if the federal government does not act on a national scale.
Executive Order 20-62 extends temporary relief efforts extended to trucking companies that have been delivering COVID-19 supplies. The order will continue until it rescinded, until September 14, 2020, or until the statewide State of Disaster Emergency expires, whichever is earlier.
