My town government is proposing to adopt an ordinance requiring anyone who advertises a room for rent for less than 30days to register with the town. If adopted, would this ordinance violate the free speech clause of the first amendment?

No, these kinds of local municipal regulations are quite commom, particularly, since the
advent of rental opportunity sites such as Arb&b in the last dew years. And, no, so far as I am
aware,, no court of any significance has ever found them to be in violation of the
First Amendment free speech clause..
