New EPA lead law in effect April 22
A new EPA rule — known as the Renovation, Repair and Painting Program — requires contractors to use lead-safe work practices on homes built prior to 1978. The new law, which goes into effect April 22 applies to painters, handymen, remodelers and many other contractors. Learn about the dangers lead poses, as well as how to know if the contractor you hire is following the law.
