AN ACT to amend the public health law, the real property  law,  the  tax
  law,  the  state  finance law, the multiple dwelling law, the multiple
  residence law, the social services  law  and  the  insurance  law,  in
  relation to enacting the "childhood lead poisoning prevention and safe
  housing  act  of 2017"; and to repeal certain provisions of the public
  health law relating thereto

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "childhood
lead poisoning prevention and safe housing act of 2017".
  § 2. Legislative findings and purposes.   1.  (a)  Lead  poisoning  of
children  persists as one of the most prevalent and preventable environ-
mental diseases in New York.  At least 10,000 children were newly  iden-
tified with levels of lead in their blood at 10 micrograms per deciliter
(ug/dl)  in  New  York  state in 2001. Moreover, only about one-third of
children are receiving the lead screenings that are required by law  and
therefore,  the  actual  number of children affected by the ingestion of
lead is undoubtedly significantly greater than reported.  Prevention  is
the  only  effective  way  to protect children from irreversible damage.
Unless lead poisoning is prevented,  elevated  blood  lead  levels  will
result in impairment of the ability to think, concentrate, and learn.
  (b)  Medical  research  indicates  that children can suffer permanent,
irreparable damage at blood levels even lower than 10  ug/dl,  and  that
there  is  no  level  of lead ingestion which is without adverse impact.
Medical research also indicates that fetal injuries from lead paint  can
occur  if women have elevated blood levels during pregnancy.  Because of
this, intervention measures that wait until children have  been  exposed
have  limited  benefits,  and  the  pursuit of primary prevention, which
means eliminating lead hazards before children  are  exposed,  has  been
