A bill filed in the Massachusetts legislature is aimed at preventing a leading cause of injury to children—falls from windows.  The bill was scheduled for a public hearing today before the legislature’s Committee on Housing.

The bill calls on the state to create a Window Falls Prevention Program. The program would offer education to the public about the dangers open windows can pose to young children and the importance of installing window guards.
