The commissioner in consulta- tion with the commissioner of transportation, shall promulgate rules and regulations as he or she shall deem necessary to carry out the provisions of this subdivision Section two provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would require that every for hire vehicle operated or driven upon the public highways of the state with a chassis which was manufactured and then altered for the purpose of transporting ten or more occupants, including the driver, be equipped with an operable carbon monoxide detector. Just as we install carbon monoxide detectors to keep us safe in our homes, passengers in these vehicles would benefit from the protections of carbon monoxide detectors. Detectors are inexpensive, easy to install, and reliable. Requiring that these vehicles be equipped with carbon monoxide detectors will help avoid accidental Injuries and deaths.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A2228, 2019 and 2020, referred to transportation.
