BILL NUMBER:S6657C

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
requiring the New York state uniform fire prevention and building code
to address standards for the installation and maintenance of carbon
monoxide detectors in restaurants and other commercial buildings

PURPOSE:

This legislation enacts Steven Nelson's Law. It would require the
installation of carbon monoxide detecting devices in restaurants and
other commercial buildings in New York State.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 378 of the Executive is amended to require the installation
and maintenance of carbon monoxide detecting devices in restaurants
and other commercial buildings that have appliances, devices or
systems that may emit carbon monoxide.

JUSTIFICATION:

Recently, a carbon monoxide leak tragically killed a Long Island
restaurant manager and sickened nearly 30 people. The carbon monoxide
poisoning came from a malfunctioning water heater flue pipe in the
basement of the establishment.

Under current New York State law, every one or two-family home,
condominium, cooperative and each unit of a multiple dwelling must
have a working carbon monoxide detector. This law does not apply to
restaurants and other commercial buildings.

This legislation would require the installation of carbon monoxide
detecting devices in restaurants and commercial buildings in New York
State.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it
shall have become a law.
