CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1504


Introduced by Assembly Member Wicks

February 19, 2021


An act to amend Section 22590 of the Business and Professions Code, relating to hosting platforms.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1504, as introduced, Wicks. Hosting platforms.
Existing law requires a hosting platform to provide an offeror listing a residence for short-term rental on the hosting platform with a specific notice relating to certain liability considerations and risks of listing the residence. Existing law defines “hosting platform” as a marketplace that is created for the primary purpose of facilitating the rental of a residential unit, as specified.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to that definition.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
