Contact your Representative to Cosponsor the EPA Lead Rule Reform Bill (H.R. 2328)
Please take action now by visiting NLBMDA’s Legislative Action Center and asking your Representative to cosponsor the Lead Exposure Reduction Amendments Act (H.R. 2328). The legislation, introduced on Thursday, May 14, would reform the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule for residential building. Among the key provisions in the bill, it would restore the opt-out clause and require EPA to identify a test kit meeting the rule’s standards.
The legislation was introduced by Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND). In addition, H.R. 2328 has eight original cosponsors including Reps. Rod Blum (R-IA), Chris Collins (R-NY), Charles Fleischmann (R-TN), Tim Murphy (R-PA), Collin Peterson (D-MN), Pete Sessions (R-TX), Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA). NLBMDA has made passage of H.R. 2328 a top legislative priority and we encourage you to take action now by contacting your representative and asking them to cosponsor the Lead Exposure Reduction Amendments Act.
