Colorado Lawmakers Take Up Bed Bugs

DENVER (AP) – Politics makes strange bedfellows, and so do bed bugs.

Colorado lawmakers are considering a bill that will repeal Colorado’s Bedding Act, which requires that beds be sanitized before they can be resold. The bill is a move to cut red tape.

Opponents say improperly renovated mattresses are a significant cause in the spread of beg bugs in Colorado.

Lawmakers will consider the bill on Wednesday in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

    Repealing this would be a very bad idea. If anything we need more and stricter laws to curtail the spread of bed bugs!!

    OMG I am sorry to read this as we were bitten from head to toe at a Ft. Collins hotel that we stayed in for one night…horrid and we will never stay in your state again because of it. Cannot trust your innkeepers to clean up their act.
