Bedbugs-Gianaris Bill Passes!

The bill that state Assemblyman Gianaris proposed to help battle bedbugs with knowledge and communication has passed unopposed on May 8, 2007! It required the Schools in Queens to notify parents of any outbreaks of bedbugs in schools which would allow other parents to keep their eyes open for any potential bugs that may be brought back home inadvertently. It would also offer parents prevention techniques and treatment options to help in the battle. This is a fantastic idea that the nation should adopt. Without education and communication, the bedbug problem that is already out of control will continue to flourish.

The bill passed in the NYS Assembly but as I understand it still needs to get through the NYS Senate to become a law. And I sure hope it will, for all the reasons you describe.
