Two Senate Committees will be hearing 3 bills dealing with illegal vacation rentals in Hawai’i. The hearing is on Friday, February 3 at 1:25p at the State Capitol, Conference Room 414.
Did you know there are an estimated 33,000 homes being used as vacation rentals in the state? And that in 2 years, that number is projected to jump to 40,000?
You may remember that last year, we successfully defeated HB1850, a bill supported by Airbnb that would have allowed illegal vacation rentals to continue to negatively impact our housing, our economy, and our neighborhoods.
Airbnb is now supporting SB1087, a bill that is nearly identical to HB150. We urge you to submit testimony OPPOSING SB1087.
Please submit testimony by TOMORROW (Thursday, February 2) before 1:25p. If you can testify in person at the hearing, please do!
