Denver (AP) - Relatives of people who've died from carbon monoxide poisoning are expected to attend a bill-signing on a measure that will require many homes to have devices designed to detect the colorless, odorless gas.
Gov. Bill Ritter will sign the bill into law Tuesday. It will require all homes and apartment buildings for sale beginning July 1 to have carbon monoxide detectors near bedrooms.
Homeowners and apartment owners also will have to install detectors if they complete any major renovations or additions.
The bill is named for Lauren Johnson of Denver and the Lofgren family of Denver.
All died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
