Permits and fines established for biological agent detectors 

It doesn’t sound like anyone is using them, but that fact didn’t stop the Board of Supervisors from unanimously adopting legislation on Tuesday that creates permits and other regulations for someone to install a biological agent detector. The law enacts a $5,000 penalty for a false alarm of the devices.

The legislation was introduced by Board of Supervisors President David Chiu and is viewed as a law designed to prevent such devices from being installed.
