The Illinois Fire Marshal wants to require all new homes and businesses to have sprinkler systems.

It’s an idea not without controversy.

The systems could add from $6,000 to $15,000 to the cost of a home or business building.

There is a bill in the legislature now that would give more power to the legislature to talk it over. The State Fire Marshal says these systems would improve public safety.

Maryland and California are the only states to have a mandate like this in place.
