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.
