Critics say Colorado bill relaxing bed regulations could spread bed bugs

DENVER - Politics makes strange bedfellows, and so do bed
Colorado lawmakers are considering a bill that will repeal
Colorado's Bedding Act, which requires that beds be sanitized
before they can be resold. The bill is a move to cut red tape.
Opponents say improperly renovated mattresses are a significant
cause in the spread of beg bugs in Colorado.
Lawmakers will consider the bill on Wednesday in the Senate
Health and Human Services Committee.
