NY State Senate Bill S6340A

Mr. Josh Meltzer, who is responsible for New York's public policy at Airbnb, said "Albany"It was disappointing but not surprising that the Parliament of the state capital of New York State (the state capital of New York State) went with the hotel industry at the last minute of the bankruptcy, eviction and foreclosure transactions of the seizure," said TechCrunch I talk in an interview to.

Mr. Meltzer says Mr. Meltzer that the New York State legislature made a strict judgment while approaches such as approving a part of the national accommodation service like Airbnb are proceeding in various parts of the world. "What is this bill It is a bad bill that makes it difficult to pay thousands of New Yorkers, while dozens of governments around the world have indicated that there is a way to successfully regulate home sharing (national holiday), New York also follows it I hope to protect the citizens of the middle class (middle class), "I also commented.

As it is, Mr. Meltzer also says that the passage of the bill in New York State is "outdated", but likewise the voice of supporting Airbnb is raised from Tech Industries such as computers.

Fred Wilson of the venture capitalist said, "Tech is important to New York's economy, but the mainstream New York parliament and the Senate are trying to eliminate this with the worst anti-tech bills A 8704 C and S 6340 A." I am posting a tweet blaming the bill.

Also, as a computer scientist and investorPaul Graham"The New York State Senate is quietly advancing a bill to ban Airbnb, so if anyone wants more democratic judgment please tell Congress that," he said.

According to Airbnb's survey, it is said that up to 31,000 New Yorkers will face evictionary or seizure crisis if this bill is actually legislated. Also, since most of the properties in New York posted on Airbnb are for renting a residence or apartment as a whole, most of it will violate the bill, so it will cause great damage to Airbnb's business itself as well It is going to be.
