Initial discussion into legislation that would prohibit local government from enforcing ordinances restricting use of residential properties as vacation rental dwellings (VRDs) will be heard Tuesday in the Oregon Senate.

Senate Bill 621, sponsored by Sen. Fred Girod (R-Stayton), is scheduled to be introduced early Tuesday morning in a hearing before the Senate Committee on Business and General Government.

Passage of the measure would virtually eliminate local government’s ability to enforce regulations restricting use of lawful dwellings for short-term vacation occupancy except to require owners to register the unit and pay a reasonable registration fee and transient lodging tax, as required by state law.

The public hearing and possible work session for SB621 at the 80th Oregon Legislative Assembly in Salem is expected to be held at approximately 8:30 a.m.
