BROKEN BOW, OK - An Oklahoma state lawmaker says he wants to amend a law that could cause cabin rental fees to rise.
State Representative Dennis Bailey of Broken Bow has filed a bill to exempt cabin managers from a requirement that they have a real estate license.
Bailey says people who manage rentals for cabin owners should not have to go through the licensing process that the Real Estate Commission apparently wants them to do.
He says currently, working under hotel-motel guidelines, cabin rentals run around $9 million a year just in McCurtain County.
If unchanged Bailey says the law would increase the number of real estate agents operating in every county that includes rental cabins.
