House approves carbon monoxide bill
DENVER (AP) ” The Colorado House has approved a bill requiring carbon monoxide alarms in new homes and apartments.
House Bill 1091, approved Tuesday, now goes to the Senate.
Lawmakers argued about whether state buildings should fall under the same requirements, but Denver Democratic Rep. Lois Court said 82 percent of carbon monoxide poisoning incidents occur in private residences.
The push for the bill comes after the death of a University of Denver student and a Denver family of four from carbon monoxide.
