SB 98 - This act revises and modernizes the law governing the sale of bedding. This law has not been changed since before 1939. The existing law provides that persons making or renovating bedding are subject to inspection, are required to meet specified sanitary conditions, must operate under a permit, and must properly label their products. The Department may prosecute violators of the law. Violation is a class A misdemeanor (up to one year in jail).
The revised law simply modernizes the above requirements,
provides standards for sanitization procedures and correctly
reflects that the program is administered by the Department of
Health rather than the Department of Social Services. Labels
attached to bedding under this act must be written in English.
This act is identical to SB 939 (1998) and Truly Agreed to
SCS/HCS/HBs 316, 660 & 203 (1999).
