The Environmental Protection Agency has changed current lead-based paint rules.  We just received this legal bulletin through Windermere (click to expand):

It looks like anyone renovating a pre-1978 home (being compensated) must be certified by the EPA. Both the contractor and at least one person on the job must have this certification.

For a complete view of the regulation, here is a link to the HUD website:  http://hud.gov/offices/lead/training/rrp/rrp.cfm

Sound off!  What do you think about this new EPA regulation?
