Update on HB1471 and SB704 (bills re: Airbnb)

Good news: Chair Wakai & the Senate Committees passed HB1471 with amendments that move us in the right direction to regulate Airbnb and protect our affordable housing.

Bad news: the House Committee on Tourism gutted & replaced SB704 with language from the bad Airbnb bill. Call your State Representative & let them know that you OPPOSE SB704 (find your Rep here: http://capitol.hawaii.gov). Look out for an email soon on submitting testimony to oppose SB704.
