In an article for, reporter Suzy Khimm spotlighted new legislation from Congressman Jesus Garcia (D-IL) that requires combination carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in public and assisted housing units and authorizes $300 million over a three-year period for installation and maintenance.

Khimm, who has led the coverage of this issue for NBC News, included a link to CLPHA’s letter of support for Garcia’s bill in her online story, noting that we waited to support the legislation until funding for installing the detectors was increased.

As CLPHA reported to members last week, the bill was approved by the House Committee on Financial Services on June 26 and now moves to the full House for consideration.
