Door could be slammed on vacation rentals plan
Senate Rules postponed the bill, but the House is poised to pass it.
By A.G. Gancarski
A bill preempting short-term zoning for rentals was temporarily postponed early in the Senate Rules Committee after consistent objections from local leaders and a lack of support from the Governor.
SB 1128, sponsored by Republican Sen. Manny Diaz Jr., was not heard Monday.
The House bill (HB 1011) has cleared all three committees of reference and is ready for the floor, meaning there is still a path despite the committee stall.
