DENVER (AP) - Politics makes strange bedfellows, and so do bed bugs.
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.
