Praise for Coalition's Advocacy on Nuisance Ordinance Bill

Preserving Democracy in Pennsylvania!
HB 1796 was written to exempt victims of domestic violence from "nuisance ordinances" that allow landlords to evict those who call 911 more than a certain number of times within a given period.
"The preemption seekers assumed advocates in the area of domestic violence would not let anything stand in the way of passage of their bill. They assumed wrong. PCADV... let it be known they would not support their own bill if the amendment were included"
