Memo

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.
