New York Trying to Outlaw B&B’s, Vacation Rentals?

Author: , July 23rd, 2010

Just got this from one of our innkeepers:

You might want to look at BILL S6783. The powers that be in their infinite wisdom have decided that it might be in everyone’s interest to ban alternative accommodation practice in New York City. This could set a precedent for all cities. The bill was signed on July 4th (not read by most who signed as usual) and Gov. Patterson has to make a decision on Friday. Essentially this bill will kill half of New York City’s tourism and business and we in real estate have to do something NOW to inform the public and the media as to what is REALLY going on. This is nothing more than a smokescreen to allow the hotels to do business unabated.

I strongly urge all of you to call 1 518 474 8390 (Gov’s office) and ask him to VETO this preposterous and entirely unconstitutional bill.

We saw something very similar play out across Hawaii, when the big hotels supported efforts to make the smaller, non-hotel properties illegal. Here’s more information about this bill:
