CNN chief White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins questioned White House American Rescue Plan coordinator Gene Sperling Monday about why the Biden administration didn’t publicly push sooner for an eviction moratorium extension.

The federal eviction moratorium established by the Centers for Disease Control during the covid-19 pandemic expired this past weekend. Sperling said at the briefing they’ve faced “a very difficult obstacle” from the June Supreme Court ruling that kept the moratorium in place only for one more month.
