Ind. Gov't. - State preemption of local bans on short term rentals eligible for vote again today
Updating earlier ILB posts on HB 1133, the Airbnb bill (state preemption of local bans on short term rentals), Katie Stancombe of The Statehouse File reported at length yesterday in a story at the IBJ headed "Bill on short-term rentals resurrected in Indiana House." Re the status of the bill:
The Indiana House could consider a bill as soon as Thursday that would limit how much control local municipalities such as Carmel might have in restricting these Airbnb-style rentals.
The bill, authored by Rep. Matthew Lehman, R-Berne, failed to garner the necessary 51 votes to pass on Monday. But Tuesday, lawmakers agreed by a 48-44 vote to reconsider the measure when they return to session on Thursday.
