Denver (AP) Relatives of people who've died from carbon monoxide poisoning say they are comforted after Gov. Bill Ritter signed a measure that will require many homes to have devices designed to detect the colorless, odorless gas.

Ritter signed the bill into law yesterday. It will require all homes and apartment buildings offered for sale after 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, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
