When natural disaster strikes, homeowners turn to their home insurance companies to help them with temporary housing and the repair or replacement of their permanent homes. But renters often don’t have those options. That’s why some Ohio lawmakers want to establish a permanent replacement housing program.
State Rep. Rick Perales (R-Beavercreek) saw damage firsthand after a tornado hit his Dayton area district in May. He says he also saw renters with damaged properties unable to find a suitable replacement home nearby.
