Senate Bill 460 (SB 460)

The law is geared to protect children from lead hazards in their homes before they are poisoned.  SB 460 makes "lead hazards" a housing violation under state law and authorizes building departments, code enforcement and health departments to investigate and enforce the law against landlords, just like other housing violations.  In addition, the law which requires universal reporting of all blood lead analysis results, will allow DHS, for the first time to collect accurate data on the extent of screening and poisoning throughout the state.
