Iowa lawmaker kills window-safety bill
DES MOINES (AP) — A measure that would put tougher safety restrictions on windows in new buildings in Iowa in an effort to prevent children from falling out appears dead after the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Wednesday that he will block it.
The Senate had approved the bill, and a House subcommittee passed it on Monday. But Republican Rep. Chip Baltimore of Boone announced Wednesday that he wouldn’t let the full Judiciary Committee take up the proposal.
The bill would have modified safety requirements so windows installed in new or renovated multifamily dwellings, hotels and motels had to adopt window fall prevention devices meeting industry guidelines.
