Court orders EPA to revise lead-paint rules
from The USGlass News Network
A federal appeals court has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to revise its lead-paint standards within 90 days and write new rules within a year. The 2-1 decision by the San Francisco-based Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit came in response to environmental groups demanding that the EPA act upon a rulemaking petition it granted several years ago. The environmental groups involved in the legal action argued that the most up-to-date scientific research shows today’s standards for mitigating lead-based paint don’t go far enough to protect children. The court accepted that argument.
