Montana SB 300 was drafted by a homeowner who bought a house to use as a vacation rental in the Red Lodge subdivision. All of the homeowners in the HOA (except this one) voted in favor of an amendment to clarify their HOA covenants, resulting in restrictions on vacation (short-term) rentals. The attorney for the homeowner drafted the bill language and has been leading the efforts for its passage. This court should determine the outcome of the case, not the legislature.
SB 300 passed the Senate (in six days) and an amended version passed the House Judiciary committee on April 2. This week it may move quickly in the House and back to the Senate for consideration of amendments.
ACT TODAY -
email the Governor of Montana or
House Speaker Greg Hertz and urge them not to sign the bill.
