Bill to speed up eviction process dies

By Rochelle McConkie

A bill that would have exempted university housing from state eviction laws by eliminating the court process died last night in the House of Representatives.

The U wanted the bill passed so Housing and Residential Education could evict students who are not paying their leases or are no longer attending classes without going to court, speeding up the process so HRE could fill these spots with students abiding by the rules.

They argued that the U is not a traditional landlord, therefore making it exempt from state laws.
