149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 16 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTION DEVICES.
This Act creates a requirement that lodging establishments with an appliance that emits carbon monoxide or an attached garage have working carbon monoxide detection devices in each dwelling or sleeping unit. This Substitute Bill differs from Senate Bill No. 91 as follows: 1. It clarifies that the requirements of this chapter do not apply to a private residence that is occupied by the owner if no dwelling or sleeping units are available for pay. 2. It clarifies the definition of owner so that it includes artificial entities that own or actively manage a lodging establishment but does not include an equitable interest in an artificial entity that is an owner. 3. It changes the requirements for carbon monoxide detetection device installation so that the requirements are essentially the same as the requirements for smoke detectors in Chapter 66 of Title 16. 4. It incorporates the changes in Senate Amendment No. 1 to Senate Bill No. 91, including the effective dates for compliance. 5. It provides the State Fire Marshal authority promulgate rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this chapter. 6. It makes this Act effective on January 1, 2019. 7. It makes technical corrections to conform to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
