A state House panel has delayed action on a bill that would require carbon monoxide detectors in new homes and rental properties when new tenants move in.
The House Business Affairs Committee said there was no estimate of how much the program would cost.
The bill was introduced after four members of a Denver family were found dead Nov. 28 in an Aspen-area home with high levels of carbon monoxide. Also, a 23-year-old college student died earlier this month at an apartment complex in Denver.
The student's father, Don Johnson, held up an urn containing the ashes of his daughter, Lauren, as he begged lawmakers to approve the bill.
He also held up a $20 bill, saying that's all it would have cost for a carbon monoxide detector that could've saved her life.
