Statement on Senate's SB 416 Decision

"We are very disappointed with the outcome of today’s Senate vote. This bill was not supported by any local government in Virginia, and in fact was opposed by the Virginia Municipal League and the Virginia Association of Counties. The Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia, the broader lodging industry and countless individuals have pleaded their case for a level playing field, but those pleas have been ignored. The unintended consequences of this bill and the lack of accountability and enforcement beg for this issue to be further studied to resolve these issues.”

Eric Terry
President, Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association
