Int 1586-2017 *Ritchie J. Torres  Amend local law number 50 for the year 2015.IntroductionThis bill would extend, by two years, the limitations placed on the conversion of certain hotel space for purposes other than use as a hotel, as imposed by Local Law 50/2015 which restricted hotels having 150 units or more from converting more than 20 percent of the floor area used for sleeping accommodations to a different use.
