WDMA Applauds Senate Introduction of EPA Lead Rule Reform Legislation

Posted By Administration, Thursday, August 6, 2015
[Washington DC-8/6/2015] - The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) applauds the introduction of legislation today in the U.S. Senate that would reform the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) Rule to reduce the burden the rule has placed on the home retrofit market while protecting pregnant women and small children from lead hazards. The "Lead Exposure Reduction Amendments Act of 2015" (S. 1987) was introduced by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and 2 original cosponsors. Sen. Inhofe is the Chair of the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, which has jurisdiction over this issue. This bill is a companion piece of legislation to H.R. 2328, introduced in the House of Representatives by Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) earlier this year. Read more.
