Introduced in the Senate

Oct. 29, 2013

Introduced by Sen. Dave Hildenbrand (R-29)

To prohibit a landlord from renting a unit that he or she knows is infested with bedbugs; prohibit tenants from moving items out of an infested unit or attempting to apply control treatments to the unit; and require tenants to grant reasonable access to professional pest management personnel and comply with the control protocols established by the landlord. Tenants who cause an infestation would be responsible for treatment costs.
