Christina Lewellen, senior editor of Window & Door

We're going to keep it simple this week. Sometimes we all deserve a break with a nice, easy yes-or-no question, so here it is: Should the EPA delay implementing the new rules for handling lead paint dust during renovations?

We've asked in previous weeks if you were aware of the rules, if you were trained on the rules, if you were ready for the start date. But I want you to look beyond your specific company for a minute to consider the readiness of the industry at large. WDDA, AAMA, WDMA and other building products industry associations are pushing hard for a later start date than April 22. Is this a worthwhile endeavor?

Please send me an email to let me know why you think this rule should go into effect as planned on April 22, or why you think we need more time to prepare.
