The New Orleans City Council on Sept. 7 introduced new legislation that, if passed, would effectively ban all non-commercial short-term rentals in the city. This comes after an attorney filed a temporary restraining order against the council’s current short-term rental policy. While a federal judge weighs the legality of a recent set of short-term rental rules passed by the city council, council members say they’re taking steps for a potential counter-move. The next federal hearing is set for Sept. 14, when a judge could determine if the council’s current legislation is constitutional.
