U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and John Hoeven introduced bipartisan legislation to help prevent carbon monoxide-related deaths. The Nicholas and Zachary Burt Memorial Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention Act, named for two young brothers from Kimball, Minnesota who died from carbon monoxide poisoning, would empower the Consumer Product Safety Commission to encourage tougher standards to help ensure carbon monoxide detectors are safe and reliable. According to the CDC, at least 430 people in the U.S. die each year from CO poisoning and approximately 50,000 people are forced to seek medical attention for accidental poisoning.
