Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed SB 1350 today, which will prevent cities in the state from banning short-term rental services like Airbnb or HoweAway. According to an earlier report from Forbes, Governor Ducey's end goal is to turn Arizona into The Sharing Economy State, which is somewhat different from the state's motto of "God enriches."
Hm. To me, this the other extreme of what is happening in cities like San Francisco or New York. I think the government should just stop meddling in this. We already have all kinds of regulations with regards to rental, short or long terms. For buildings with HOA, I think it is fair for the residents to abide the HOA laws. For neighborhood, there are already myriads of ordinances, including noise ordinance. The same thing for tenants who want to sublet - the Lease Agreement should already covers that.
I googled him. This particularly impressed me: "Most recently, in 2012 he was given the Tom and Madena Stewart lifetime compassion award by Make-A-Wish Arizona for creating the World’s Largest Ice Cream Social while serving as CEO of Cold Stone Creamery."
