Denver (AP) State lawmakers will again consider whether to require more homes to be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors.
The proposal unveiled Wednesday was prompted by the deaths of four members of a Denver family during a stay at a luxury home in Aspen. The bill has the support of family and friends of the family and will be introduced after the new legislative session begins
State rep. John Soper and incoming Rep. Lois Court want to require all new homes and all homes up for sale to be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors.
Last year, the state senate rejected a similar bill amid criticism that would help create a “nanny state.”
