EPA Postpones Commercial Lead Paint Rule
Industry Involvement is Key to the Victory

McLean, VA (September 28, 2012)— In a victory for the industry, the EPA has delayed a proposed lead paint rule for public and commercial buildings. The delay comes on the heels of an EPA cost/benefit analysis report, which includes considerable involvement and input from the NGA and NGA member representation on the EPA panel that did the analysis. The delay extends consideration until 2015.  The NGA will keep you informed of future developments.
