A bill that would boost the number of household carbon monoxide detectors is one step closer to law.

The full Senate gave initial backing to the bill today. The house has already approved it.

Lawmakers rejected a similar measure last year because they said it was pushed by detector manufacturers. Some former opponents say they've been moved by several carbon monoxide deaths in the state in the last year.

If the bill passes another vote in the senate, it could be signed into law within two weeks.
