YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: The state Senate Health Committee uanimously approved a bill today that would require healthcare and residential facilities to have a bedbug maintenance plan in place with a licensed exterminator.

“Any facility where people stay overnight should have a plan in place, ready to be carried out at a moments notice should bedbugs be discovered,” said state Sen. Robert Singer (R-Ocean), who sponsored the measure, which now goes to the full Senate for a vote.

“Bedbugs are a formidable pest problem that must be dealt with swiftly and efficiently,” Singer said. “Senior citizens, hospital patients and tourists throughout New Jersey all have a right to know that the bed they are sleeping in is clean, safe and free of bedbugs.

“It is in everyone’s best interest to have a comprehensive plan in place to keep people safe.”
