Hostel ban bill defeated in Russia’s Federation Council
MOSCOW, March 13 (RAPSI) – The Federation Council on Wednesday rejected a bill banning hostels and hotels in residential premises of multifamily dwellings that was earlier passed by the State Duma.
Members of the upper house of parliament suggested to amend the bill with a provision stipulating its entry into force on January 1, 2020.
The State Duma adopted the initiative on March 6.
The draft law is aimed to amend the Housing Code and prohibits hotel services in residential multiple dwellings.
The bill was submitted to the State Duma as far back as 2015.
