Arizona Senate Passes Bill That Fines Operators Of ‘Party Houses’

I support this legislation. We must respect our neighbors and that includes their right to peacefully live in their own home.

Some Arizona legislators want to crack down on rental homes that hold special events.

The legislation which began as House Bill 2672 and passed the Arizona Senate on Monday would ban operators of vacation and short-term rental homes from holding special events that would otherwise require a license.

Citing complaints from a constituent who is a teacher, Sen. Kate Brophy McGee, R-Phoenix, said the bill is necessary to curb enthusiasm for unruly behavior and loud parties in residential neighborhoods. “We have naked men jumping off the roof of the house into the pool and we have car loads of hookers who come and go all day and all night,” said McGee who quoted her constituent.

The bill moves back to the House for another vote.
