Residential dwelling units; rentals for 30 consecutive days or longer. Prohibits a locality from enacting or enforcing an ordinance that bans the rental of residential dwelling units for 30 consecutive days or longer. The bill allows a locality by ordinance to regulate such rental if such regulations (i) are reasonable and (ii) do not exceed the requirements for an owner-occupied residential property or a residential property rented for a lease term of 12 months or more in the same zoning district. This bill is identical to SB 308. Read the Bill »


The fiscal impact statement indicates that there will be a "Net Reduction of Revenues" due to the legislation HB 634, but the specific dollar amount is not provided in the document. The impact is noted in terms of reductions in Real Estate Revenue, Personal Property Revenue, Sales Tax Revenue, BPOL Tax Revenue, Other Local Revenues, and State Revenue for the responding localities. The impact is described as not having a material impact on expenditures over the next two years for some localities, while others noted that the bill would prevent them from enacting ordinances related to the rental of residential dwelling units for 30 consecutive days or longer.
