TRENTON, NJ — The New Jersey Senate has passed a bill that would require facilities such as hospitals, hotels, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, boarding houses and homeless shelters to have a bedbug maintenance plan in place, according to a press release.

The legislation, S-2543, is sponsored by state Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) and was passed by a 35-1 vote on Thursday, the release stated.

"Any facility where people stay overnight should have a plan in place, ready to be carried out at a moment’s notice should bedbugs be discovered," said Singer.

"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," Singer added.
