Texas proposal would keep cities from restricting short-term home rentals

A new bill plans to reduce the control of local governments over short-term rentals in the state of Texas. The legislation would combat the efforts of cities including Austin, Fort Worth, and San Antonio to restrict homeowners from participating in the home-sharing economy. Those who oppose the bill argue that short-term rentals negatively impact property values and welcome reckless strangers into quiet neighborhoods, but advocates endorse the bill as a check on overly-strict local policies that infringe on property rights. The fate of Senate Bill 451 will impact the growth of short-term rentals in Texas in the coming years.
