Updated May 2012

NCSL's Lead Hazards Project assists states on the issue of lead poisoning prevention by facilitating information exchange among the states and by promoting improved coordination between the states and EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics. Major activities undertaken by the project include publication of Lead Poisoning Prevention: A Guide for Legislators, numerous articles and memos on lead hazard reduction, summarizing legislation and regulatory programs that address lead hazards, providing technical assistance to state legislatures on lead hazard reduction, organizing a series of meetings between state policy makers and EPA, and promoting states' interests in the development of federal policies addressing lead poisoning and hazard reduction.

NCSL is initiating a series of publications and other forms of outreach to states and state legislatures to assist in their development of policies to address lead and other toxics.
