NC House to Vote on Heating

Posted March 21, 1999 6:00 a.m. EST

— Having a warm room in a rental house or apartment may soon be the law.

The North Carolina House is expected to vote later today on a measure requiring landlords in cities of at least 200,000 people to provide at least one room of heat in low-income housing.

Not everyone like the proposed law.

Some landlords say the bill will force them to increase rent for those properties.
