Monthly Reader Poll

Monthly Poll: RRP Rule Economic Impact

Last  month, the Environmental Protection Agency announced it would not make any amendments to the controversial Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. In the review of the RRP Rule, which was required by Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, the EPA did recognize some issues with the Rule, but ultimately determined that the “economic benefits of the RRP Rule outweigh industry complaints.” Complaints from the industry focus mainly on the expense associated with lead mitigation in cases where it is unnecessary—that is, in households without a child under the age of six or a pregnant woman present, the groups which the Rule intends to protect.
