Lead poisoning prevention. Continues the Joint Subcommittee Studying the Abatement of Lead-based Paint as the Joint Subcommittee Studying Lead Poisoning Prevention. During the 1998 interim, the Joint Subcommittee received testimony and presentations on important issues relating to lead poisoning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, parents of children with lead poisoning, and real estate professionals. The issues brought to the Joint Subcommittee’s attention require expansion of the study committee to include additional legislative members, a parent of a child with lead poisoning, a physician with expertise in treating lead poisoning, a lead abatement contractor, a local building official, a member of a local governing body, one real estate professional, and one expert in assisting real estate professionals in averting liability for lead poisoning. The Joint Subcommittee Studying Lead Poisoning Prevention is directed to (i) receive reports and data and make recommendations on appropriate lead risk reduction policy in the Commonwealth; (ii) receive reports and data on the concerns related to liability for lead in housing and assess possible solutions to these concerns; (iii) receive reports and data on the prevention of lead poisoning among the citizens of the Commonwealth, particularly children; (iv) strive to involve building officials and other local government officials in the work to avert lead poisoning; (v) receive reports and data relating to medical guidelines for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lead poisoning, particularly among children; (vi) work with the Board of Medicine, the Medical Society of Virginia and others in providing education to the public and the medical community concerning prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lead poisoning; and (vii) evaluate such other issues as it may deem necessary in alleviating this serious problem in Virginia.
