Legislative findings
Real Property (RPP) CHAPTER 50, ARTICLE 7A
§ 239. Legislative findings. The legislature recognizes that the
ever-increasing cost of home heating has resulted in widespread consumer
interest in the use of portable kerosene heaters. Because there is a
wide variety of kerosene heaters, including different designs and
intended purposes, the public interest requires that those heaters which
are used in residential structures meet certain safety standards
designed to insure that they are reasonably safe for that purpose.
Accordingly, it is the intent of this article to protect the public by
establishing standards which will permit the use of reasonably safe
heaters in residential structures.
