Our non-profit NYC Councilmatic is live, for tracking and understanding everything in the NYC Council.
Check the three main NYC Council Intros in this legislative initiative, linked on my PPF Blog post today.
Fellow BetaNYC’ers, post comments there - e.g. on CM Rosenthal’s bill, Intro 826- and we’ll feature them this month as part of a verified public comment program with “verified” Council offices and community groups.
More about where we’re headed, e.g. for keyword & issue alerts (over email & SMS & social media) for agenda items in city council committee hearings - questions & feedback welcome, more to come this month. Ping me anytime, I’m david at ppolitics.org, or davidmooreppf on Skype chat.
Just a suggestion, the BetaNYC community could collaboratively draft legislation to set standards for how this requested rental data from AirBNB and other services is released, with what fields included (e.g. addresses, what watchdogs need) - and deliver it to supportive council offices to introduce for a formal hearing in the Housing Committee.
