Lawmakers vote to strip cities of power to ban Airbnbs

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska lawmakers have passed a bill to strip cities of their power to ban short-term rentals such as Airbnb.

The measure won final approval Friday with a 46-0 vote. It now goes to the governor.

The bill by state Sen. Adam Morfeld, of Lincoln, still allows cities to tax short-term rentals and regulate them for health and public safety purposes.

It also gives online short-term rental companies to enter into an agreement with the state to collect and pay sales taxes that are owed.
