Hotel Licensing Hearing
Yesterday, HF626, a bill that would establish authority for municipalities to establish ordinances on hotel licensing passed the House State Local Government Finance and Policy Committee. The bill was sent to the general register and will become eligible for a House floor vote.
The bill is being led by Representative Becker-Finn, in an effort to address 3 problem hotel properties in the City of Roseville. Hospitality Minnesota has weighed in repeatedly to convey that there are multiple options and mechanisms available to address this local issue. Legislation that impacts hotel properties statewide is unnecessary and burdensome. Hospitality Minnesota will continue to work with the City of Roseville as well as appropriate legislators in an effort to make amendments so the bill clearly delineates the authority in which municipalities could manage hotel licenses.
