ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque city councilors shot down a proposal Monday night. It would have set new rules for short-term rentals like AirBnBs.
The plan would have capped the number of short-term rentals in the city, among other rules, with the goal of keeping those properties available for local long-term tenants.

- Crime: Suspect linked to 11-year-old’s killing near Isotopes Park to be released from custody
- Local: Eight New Mexico high schoolers to be featured in new video series
- Entertainment: Premiere date released for Nathan Fielder and Emma Stone’s new series set in New Mexico
- New Mexico: City lays out plan for stadium at Balloon Fiesta Park, including additional parking
Monday night, councilors in favor of the bill, introduced a version that would have relaxed or reworked the restrictions. That wasn’t enough for many short-term rental owners, who still came out against any new rules at all.
Councilors voted down both versions of the proposal on a six-to-three vote.
