There’s big news in the building industry today as Congress voted in favor of an NLBMDA-approved amendment that will stop EPA Lead Rule enforcement until a reliable test kit is found and approved. Right now, many test kits on the market are returning as high as 60 percent false positives, costing too many contractors and homeowners alike time and money. This will also help buy more time for many more contractors to get EPA Lead Safe certified. It’s still best to practice lead-safe procedures, but for now, the EPA will not be handing out any fines.
