Information about the EPA's lead paint rule

Feb. 17, 2011 -- Gov. Mark Dayton signed into law Senate File 139, a bill related to online notification of EPA-certified lead abatement licensed contractors. Under current law, a building inspector must prove that a contractor received their EPA certificate in lead specialization when remodeling pre-1978 houses by confirming their certification online. Under SF 139, contractors who receive their certification now have until August 1 to post their name to the verified list, which will be available on DLI's website.
