Sen. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenBiden says he won't legalize marijuana because it may be a 'gateway drug' Democrats seize on report of FedEx's Elizabeth Warren tax bill to slam Trump's tax plan Warren 'fully committed' to 'Medicare for All' MORE (D-Mass.) pledged to create a Tenant Protection Bureau as part of her plan to strengthen renters rights as she seeks the Democratic nomination for president.
The proposal released Monday builds on Warren's previously announced $500 billion affordable housing plan.
The bureau, which Warren said would be modeled after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau the senator established under the Obama administration, would work to enforce tenants' rights including new rights she’s pushing for on behalf of renters.ADVERTISEMENT
“Before the financial crash, I came up with the idea for a consumer financial protection agency— a new federal agency dedicated to protecting American consumers. I fought for that agency, helped build it from scratch, and now the CFPB has returned nearly $12 billion directly to consumers scammed by financial institutions,” Warren said.
Warren’s plan also proposes creating a tenant hotline modeled after the CFPB consumer complaint database that will route complaints from tenants to their landlord through the Department of Housing and Urban Development that could review the data and share it with local officials to help enforce protections.
