I previously reported on Austin Stone who was left blind, hard of hearing, and now has problems with his speech as a result of complications from medical gas when he had his wisdom teeth removed.

Now it is reported that Kansas has approved a bill where regulations must be followed for installation of medical gas systems. Specifically now a licensed individual must be responsible for any repairs, maintenance and inspection of medical gas piping systems. Surprising this bill was rejected by 32 in the Kansas House. Before this becomes law it must now go to the Kansas Senate.
