A bill that would have ended Metro Council’s efforts to phase out non-owner rentals has been pulled from consideration for 2017, according to the bill’s sponsor.

Sen. Jon Stevens, R-Huntingdon, said Tuesday that the Senate has kicked the bill, which, after amendments, would have only affected Davidson County homeowners, to session next year.

Metro Council had a public hearing about its bill that would begin to phase out the non-owner rentals in the county. The bill is expected to be heard on second reading at the May 16 council meeting.

Stevens said in Tuesday’s Senate Finance Committee meeting that he didn’t have the support in that committee to move the bill forward and chose to delay it to 2018.

The bill, amended to focus only on Davidson County, passed in the state House on Monday night by a 53-35 vote.
