Evictions and foreclosures temporarily stopped


August 20, 2020

Governor Laura Kelly has signed Executive Orders 20-61 and 20-62 as part of her administration’s commitment to protecting Kansans’ health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Executive Order 20-61 temporarily prohibits initiating any mortgage foreclosure or judicial proceedings and any commercial or residential eviction efforts or judicial proceedings because of financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic until Sept. 15.

“COVID-19 remains a threat in our communities and is creating challenges for businesses and employees alike,” Gov. Kelly said. “Kansas families who miss mortgage or rent payments due to lost wages will need our support until the Senate extends unemployment assistance. I will continue to do everything I can to make sure the people in our state can stay in their homes and protect their businesses.”

Executive Order 20-62 extends temporary relief for motor carriers from certain rules and regulations until rescinded, until Sept. 14, or until the statewide State of Disaster Emergency expires, whichever is earlier. It is an extension of measures put in place by Executive Order 20-57.

“This order will allow our motor carriers to continue delivering much-needed supplies to Kansans who need them, and ease the burden on those who have a critical role in our state’s response to COVID-19,” Gov. Kelly said.

The order lifts certain weight restrictions and permitting requirements to allow needed medical supplies, food shipments and other items to move through Kansas as quickly as possible. These exceptions apply only to motor carriers actively participating in COVID-19 response effort.
