Republicans crated the RRP Lead Safe Rule
The Truth about The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s RRP Lead-Safe Rule, (TSCA) Section 402
Contrary to popular belief President Barack Obama did not create The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s RRP Lead-Safe Rule, (TSCA) Section 402
It was set into place by Republicans, in 1992 President George H. W. Bush signed into law Title IV of the
Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), its goal was to eliminate childhood lead poisoning by 2012
Federal law now requires:
Contractors, handyman services, property managers, and all others tradesmen who disturb known or presumed lead-based paint during renovation must be EPA certified renovators, certified in lead-safe work practices if their work disturbs more than 6 square feet of paint on the interior or a 20-square-foot section on the exterior of homes and child care facilities built before 1978. Or face fines up to $ 37. 000
And jail time if found guilty of willful endangerment by ignoring the law and contaminating a home or childcare facility with toxic lead dust.
