It was my belief the Lead components in paint was outlawed around the 1950s. Too old to remember without some investigation. So why this question? Does Obama's EPA need more public money. Probably needs money to pay for its Colorado Mine boondoggle and Office staff bonuses. By the way, did POTUS and EPA tell you the were involved in the Flint, MI disaster? Didn't think so. With so little time left until Novembers election, let cool the spending for a new Congress. Studies are good. Right? If lead levels are lowered, what about ground water lead contamination? Selenium or Chromium can also be serious. Next thing we the public will find out is the closing of public and private wells. Think about that. And just letting you know, gave up chewing on window sills many moons ago.
