2019 House Bill 4046

Ban using zoning to ban Airbnb-type rentals

Introduced in the House

Jan. 15, 2019

Introduced by Rep. Jason Sheppard (R-56)

To prohibit local governments from using zoning laws to prohibit property owners from letting out a home or condo for vacation or short-term rentals, which would apply to owners who use services like Airbnb. The bill would not prohibit local regulations on noise, advertising, traffic, or other conditions if these are “applied on a consistent basis to rental and owner-occupied residences.” This would apply to the rental of any single-family residence, a condo or a unit in a 1-to-4-family structure for terms of less than 28 days at a time.

Referred to the Committee on Local Government and Municipal Finance
