For those of you who still believe that bed bugs are exclusively a poor man's problem, here's some further evidence to the contrary. Gale Brewer, a City Councilmember who represents the Upper West Side plans to introduce some legislation into the City Council which if approved, would request the City ban the sale reconditioned mattresses and ban new mattresses from from being transported next to new ones. This is actually going to be a reintroduction of a resolution Councilwoman Brewer introduced in 2004.
Here is a link to the full text of the 2004 resolution, written in legalese. Right-click on the link to open it in a new window.
I will provide more information on Councilwoman Brewer's legislation as it becomes available.
