Local Government Leaders Call on State Lawmakers to Oppose Bills that Would Allow Short-Term Rentals to Go Unchecked
WHAT: Local municipal leaders, housing advocates, and public safety officials will hold a news conference Monday morning to urge lawmakers to vote down legislation that would allow short-term rentals to operate without regulation in Michigan.
These opponents of SB 446 and HB 4722 argue the bills create a Big Government, one-size-fits-all policy for short-term rentals that would eliminate local leaders’ ability to create policy solutions that fit the unique needs of their communities.
