Honolulu City Council has their final hearing of some key vacation rentals bills this Wednesday, May 8 at 10am. Vacation rentals take away what little affordable housing is left in Hawaii, renting it out short-term to tourists instead. The only way to stop this is through strong enforcement against illegal vacation rentals.
We strongly support Bill 85 CD2 FD1 and Bill 89 CD2 FD1, both submitted by Councilmember Menor, because we need strong enforcement of vacation rentals before we can permit more. A key part of enforcement is holding platforms like Airbnb accountable and making sure they’re transparent with their data on their hosts and listings.
Submit testimony to SUPPORT Bill 85 CD2 FD1 and Bill 89 CD2 FD1 before 10am on Wed. 5/8 using our email form below:
