( KTRS ) Some Missouri lawmakers want to protect lodging websites such as Airbnb from restrictive city ordinances.
House members on Monday approved the legislation, which includes a laundry list of other provisions. The measure already passed the Senate, but will head back to that chamber because of amendments.
The aim is to stop restrictions that could block residents from renting out their homes to vacationers through sites such as Airbnb.
The provision would bar local ordinances banning or “unreasonably restricting” the practice. Current restrictions could stay in place, and cities could impose limits for safety reasons.
