(WTXL) — Short-term vacation rentals are now allowed in seven Florida counties along the Panhandle.

According to State Representative Jason Shoaf, who is a Republican representing Florida District 7, Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Gulf, Franklin and Bay counties can now reopen vacation rentals.

We've reached out to Florida's Department of Business & Professional Regulation for more information about any possible restrictions on rentals in the Panhandle and are waiting to hear back.
