|California policymakers recently introduced new legislation that would severely restrict vacation rentals along San Diego County’s entire coastline, limiting legally-protected access to the coast.
The bill, known as AB 1731, would ban full-time vacation rentals entirely, limit hosting to primary residences, and cap unhosted stays to 30 nights per year in the coastal zone. This bill flies in the face of laws guaranteeing public access to the coast, and will devastate coastal Airbnb hosts who depend on the income to help make ends meet.
Your representative, Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, is part of the Committee and needs to hear from passionate hosts like you. Tell them to OPPOSE AB 1731, and share how vacation rentals are an important and affordable option for visiting families to access and enjoy the coastline. Will you take a minute to send them an email?
