    This Act may be cited as the ``Protecting Local Authority and 
Neighborhoods Act'' or the ``PLAN Act''.

SEC. 2. ENSURING ABILITY TO ENFORCE STATE AND LOCAL LAW RELATING TO 
              LEASING AND RENTING OF REAL PROPERTY.

    (a) No Effect of Communications Law on Claims Regarding Lease or 
Rental of Real Property.--Section 230(c) of the Communications Act of 
1934 (47 U.S.C. 230(c)) is amended by adding at the end the following:
            ``(3) No effect on claims regarding lease or rental of real 
        property.--Paragraph (1) shall not apply to any claim in a 
        civil action under State law asserted after the date of the 
        enactment of this paragraph against a provider of an 
        interactive computer service if--
                    ``(A) the claimant alleges such provider 
                facilitated the lease or rental of real property in a 
                circumstance in which a law or contractual agreement 
                restricts such lease or rental;
                    ``(B) the claimant provides written notice of the 
                alleged violation to such provider; and
                    ``(C) such provider fails to cure the alleged 
                violation within 30 days after the date on which such 
                provider receives such notice.''.
    (b) No Effect of Communications Law on Real Property Leasing or 
Rental Requirements and Protection of Property Rights.--Section 230(e) 
of the Communications Act of 1934 (47 U.S.C. 230(e)) is amended by 
adding at the end the following:
            ``(6) No effect on real property leasing or rental 
        requirements and protection of property rights.--Nothing in 
        this section (other than subsection (c)(2)(A)) shall be 
        construed to prevent any State or unit of local government from 
        enforcing a law that restricts any provider of an interactive 
        computer service from facilitating the lease or rental of real 
        property.''.
