City Council to review elevator safety bills

April 16, 2012 4:43:00 AM PDT
New York City Council's Housing and Buildings Committee will review two bills on elevator safety at a hearing on Monday.

The move towards legislation comes after three separate accidents, including a December incident that killed an advertising executive.

One bill would require repair technicians to be licensed. The other bill would require devices to stop elevators if they speed up suddenly.
