CS/SB 746 (Bean) and CS/HB 529 (Diaz) are comprehensive bills outlining the process by which a resident in an apartment building may place combustible waste and refuse in an exit corridor. The bills require the apartment’s management staff to have written policies and procedures to ensure compliance. The bills allow local fire officials the option to approve alternative storage containers that meet the required safety conditions. (Branch)
