Airbnb Pushes to Modify San Francisco Housing Laws

A new lobbying effort is underway to legalize the short-term rentals facilitated by Airbnb. From the New York Times:

The home-sharing start-up introduced a new lobbying effort this week, aiming to change how San Francisco regulators treat local housing laws. The initiative, Fair to Share San Francisco, is being pushed by a coalition of local home-sharing advocate groups, including Airbnb, Peers and Home Sharers of San Francisco. They have banded together to push for housing laws that would allow residents to rent out their homes without fear of retribution from local government agencies.
