HB 627 -- Carbon Monoxide Detection Devices

Sponsor:  McClanahan

This bill requires that all newly constructed residential
properties and rental dwellings have an approved and operational
carbon monoxide alarm installed within 10 feet of each room
lawfully used for sleeping.  This provision also applies to an
existing residential property or rental dwelling upon its sale or
the change or renewal of a lease.  The owner of any rental

been stolen, removed, discovered to be missing, or rendered
inoperable within the dwelling and keep and maintain the device
in good repair.
