HB 494 -- Lead Poisoning Abatement

Sponsor:  Oxford

This bill changes the laws regarding lead poisoning abatement
projects.  The Director of the Department of Health and Senior
Services is authorized to levy fines and initiate civil actions
against persons who violate lead abatement regulations.  Revenues
from the fines will be deposited into the Public Health Services

If a contractor fails to notify the department prior to the
commencement of a lead abatement project, the contractor will be
fined $1,000 for the first offense and $2,000 for the second
offense.  Subsequent violations will be considered a class D
felony and result in the doubling of the fines.

Contractors are required to submit a final inspection
certification to the department after completing a lead abatement
