Carbon Monoxide Hearing - 2/28
This week, the House Public Safety Finance and Policy and Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committees heard HF406 and SF225, respectively. In Tuesday’s House hearing, Hospitality Minnesota’s Jill Sims testified (pictured) addressing concerns with the bill in terms of definitions, inspections and enforcement. Legislators encouraged the author to work with the hotel industry but reiterated they felt carbon monoxide alarms are an easy piece of equipment to put in hotel rooms. Today, the bill is being heard in the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee.
We have pointed out that the bill does not account for the update to Minnesota state fire code in March 2020, which requires sleeping units with a fuel source to have a carbon monoxide alarm.
