NARI urges EPA to aggressively enforce RRP

Janaury 11, 2011 -- A letter written by Mary Busey Harris, CAE and Executive Vice President of NARI to the EPA on January 11, 2011, states "On behalf of the 7,000 companies that belong to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), I am writing to encourage the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to aggressively and fairly enforce the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) rule." 

She continues, "In our view, now that the initial training deadline has passed, EPA must aggressively and consistently enforce the LRRP rule so families can have confidence that work on their homes is being done safely and professionally," and she points out that, "non-certified contractors are working on pre-1978 homes in violation of LRRP, and we are concerned that such illegal activity will continue unless EPA launches a tough enforcement campaign."
