Via Matt Welch at Reason, the NY state senate is considering a bill to ban subleases of less than one month. Since this bill is mainly aimed at stopping people from subleasing their apartments to vacationers, I can imagine only two reasons behind it.
- The state doesn’t like that it’s losing out on potential hotel tax revenue
- The hotel lobbyists don’t like the competition and are leaning on the senators
Either way, it’s gross. If you control the property, you may dispense with it as you please.
