Banks Brown wrote this bylined article urging more stringent regulation of short term rental companies such as Airbnb. That company’s “aggressive resistance to transparency has put our regulators and law enforcement officials in the dark about” about its rental locations and customers, Mr. Banks wrote, and he urged that “the jurisdictions trying to regulate STRs should not hesitate to do so as needed and should not back down if they get sued.”
