Baker signs long-awaited Airbnb bill, opening new era for industry

Governor Charlie Baker on Friday signed legislation to tax and regulate short-term rentals through Airbnb and other companies, capping years of debate — and months of closed-door negotiations — over how to best navigate the exploding industry.
