    VRMA Successfully Thwarts Harmful California Tax Proposal

    For several weeks, VRMA members, staff, and coalition partners have engaged California lawmakers to oppose Senate Bill (SB) 584. Due to overwhelming opposition and advocacy work from the short-term vacation rental industry, the bill sponsor has converted SB 584 to a two-year bill, meaning it will no longer move forward in the 2023 legislative session. While lawmakers may attempt to revive the bill in the 2024 session, this is a major victory to eventually defeat the bill and a sign of its sheer lack of support among lawmakers and their constituents.

    VRMA has been heavily involved in the fight against SB 584 and worked with its members and industry partners to oppose the bill. VRMA members responded overwhelmingly to VRMA Action Alerts and engaged in their own advocacy to achieve this important victory. Collectively, VRMA members sent more than 2,300 letters to state legislators urging them to oppose this harmful legislation.
