I am a member of AirB&B which provides additional income to allow people to pay their mortgage payments, provides protection for consumers by vetting people, and we have used it in Europe finding it a pleasant alternative. It helps the local economies by food and entertainment expenses incurred by AirB&B customers in whatever location they are. The government should stay out of private person to person sharing of houses, condo's or apartments.
