Draft 50-State Survey of State Laws Related to Short-Term Rentals

With the increase in state-level laws addressing the short-term rental market, I asked students in my Economic Development Clinic to do a quick review of state laws, or currently proposed legislation, on the subject.  You can view the first draft here.  We are taking the unusual step of providing this in draft form for two reasons.  First, there is so much action at the state level right now that a survey like this seemed important to get out as soon as possible.  Second, we wanted assistance with anything we have missed or stated incorrectly.  If you see anything that is amiss, let us know and I will update the file.  Feel free to share the link, and it will get prettier and more complete as the semester moves on.  Thanks to my students--Jon Bonneson, Aaren Carnline, Thomas Cruz, and Geoffrey Schroeder for their assistance in compiling this data.
