Your National Association of Home Builders appealed the removal of the opt out provision of the Lead Paint Rule to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.  The hearing took place November 1.

A part of the argument was that the EPA exempted the largest part of home improvements from the Lead Paint Rule: the Do-It-Yourself “industry.”  Following the hearing, NAHB reported that relief from the Lead Paint Rule “may have to wait for a new Administration.”  Read why at Nations Building News by clicking here.
