The SF Business Times gives a good sum-up of the more than six-hour hearing over Board of Supervisor President David Chiu’s ordinance on short-term rentals. The Planning Commission voted 4-2 in favor of the ordinance but asked for changes.

It would not intrude upon apartment leases, which generally prohibit subleasing, and would give property owners 30 days to object to a tenant getting city approval for short-term subleasing.
