The American Hotel & Lobbying Association is launching a nationwide campaign to get federal and local governments to crack down on short term rentals “facilitated through websites such as AirBnB”. ┬áTheir main concern is ensuring that everyone is playing on a level playing field mostly concerning taxes but they have also hinted at Department of Health regulations which would be much more difficult for short term rentals to comply with. ┬áThis is something we are keeping an eye on here at VRMAWA and why it’s imperative we have a strong alliance with the Washington Lodging Association!
