Bill in Iowa Legislature would Mandate CO Alarms in Rental Units

Carbon Monoxide Alarm

A bill mandating carbon monoxide alarms in rental units is being considered in the Iowa State Senate. If approved as expected, the bill would become law by July 2018. KCRG-TV9 asked Dick Rehman, a Landlords of Linn County officer, about his opinion on the measure. Rehman said that if carbon monoxide alarms can save lives, he felt most landlords would support the measure. Senate File 2219 calls for voluntary compliance for private homeowners. How do you feel about this bill as a landlord?
