Local government leaders to hold news conference supporting short-term rental compromise legislation
WHAT: The Michigan Municipal League and local government leaders will hold a virtual news conference Monday morning to call attention to compromise legislation being developed that will balance the needs of short-term rental owners, permanent residents, and vacationers. Current legislation, SB 446 and HB 4722, create a one-size-fits-all policy that only caters to short-term rental owners. Newly introduced legislation like HB 4985 and others soon-to-be introduced make clear that short-term rentals are allowed in Michigan while also giving local communities the right to implement reasonable regulations that suit their unique housing needs.
