Bill Description: National Carbon Monoxide Detector Law

A BILL
To require and mandate the placement of carbon monoxide detectors in homes, government buildings and other structures, and for other purposes

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1
This bill will be referred to as the 'National Carbon Monoxide Detector Law of 2008'.

SECTION 2.
(a) Congress finds the following:

1. Most houses, hotels and buildings in the United States have some form of smoke detection equipment in the form of smoke detectors.

2. Carbon monoxide, chemical formula CO, is formed by burning gasoline, propane, natural gas, oil, or wood, and
symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure include headaches, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, even death.

3. Exposure to elevated levels of carbon monoxide can produce symptoms similar to influenza, food poisoning or other illnesses, including dizziness, nausea, headache, coughing, irregular heartbeat, and pale skin with cherry red lips and ear tips.

4. Approximately 200 people die each year in the United States from carbon monoxide poisoning, and thousands more
are sickened by exposure to the gas; and

5. These deaths and illnesses can be prevented when homes and apartments are equipped with working carbon monoxide detectors, which alert residents to the presence of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas.

SECTION 3.

Whereas mandatory placement laws on carbon monoxide detectors in residential homes currently exist as of November 1, 2007, in Illinois, Massachusetts and New York City.

Resolved that working carbon monoxide detectors will be required in all housing, dormitories, nursing homes, hospitals housing more than two people in an individual room or ten people within a building.

All government buildings and schools with enclosed parking or equipment such as boilers, furnaces, and hot water heaters powered by natural gas, coal, fuel oil, hydrogen power, or wood must install at least two carbon monoxide detectors in a prominent location within four years of the passage of this legislation. Houses and buildings powered fully by solar energy are exempt from these rules.

Resolved, all private houses and buildings in the United States housing more than two persons must have at least one carbon monoxide detector installed by January 1, 2015.
