Obama Takes a Stand on Lead Paint Regulations PDF Print E-mail
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., put a hold on president Bush's nominee to a key Environmental Protection Agency post because the agency has failed to meet a promised deadline for issuing regulations for lead paint exposure from house remodeling. He also said he would block all future EPA nominees until the agency issues the rules for contractors engaged in home remodeling. Illinois has the highest rate of childhood lead poisoning in the country.
