    EPA Press Announcements:
    July 2010
    July 6, 2010 – A rule that takes effect today will increase protections against lead-paint poisoning by eliminating the ability of owner-occupants of older housing to "opt-out" of having their contractors follow lead-safe work practices.
    July 2, 2010 -- EPA announced that it will extend the comment period for its proposed Lead Clearance rule until August 6. Under this proposal, renovation firms would have to perform dust wipe testing after certain renovations and provide the results of the testing to the owners and occupants of the building .
    June 18, 2010 -- EPA is providing renovation firms and workers additional time to obtain necessary training and certifications to comply with its new lead rules.
