Carbon Monoxide Detector Requirements for NYC Restaurants

New York City Council is currently considering passing a bill that requires all New York City bars and restaurants to have carbon monoxide detectors on the premises. City Councilman James Vacca co-sponsored the legislation several weeks ago, however, Vacca is hoping to expedite the bill since the recent death of a New York restaurant manager from carbon monoxide poisoning. The leak sickened more than two dozen other people and caused police to evacuate the restaurant and other surrounding businesses.
