  Committee on Environmental Conservation

AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law and the public health
  law, in relation to establishing environmental standards  for  ambient
  lead and lead contamination in soils and on floors and window sills

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The Legislature  finds  and  declares
that  there  is  a  present  need  to  establish New York standards with
respect to levels of ambient lead and levels of  lead  contamination  in
soils  and  on  floors  and window sills. The legislature finds that the
current regulatory standards  are  inadequate  to  protect  the  general
public  and  particularly  small  children  from  the harmful effects of
ingesting or inhaling lead dust and coming into  contact  with  lead  on
exposed  surfaces. The Legislature declares that it shall be the respon-
sibility of the commissioner of environmental conservation, in consulta-
tion with the commissioner of health, to  adopt  standards  for  ambient
lead and lead contamination of soil and windows and floors, as set forth
in  this  bill,  and  in accordance with the procedures set forth in the
environmental conservation law.
  § 2. Subdivision 1 of section 3-0301 of the environmental conservation
law is amended by adding a new paragraph nn to read as follows:
  NN. IN CONSULTATION WITH THE COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH PURSUANT TO SUBDI-
VISION THIRTY-ONE OF SECTION TWO HUNDRED SIX OF THE PUBLIC  HEALTH  LAW,
AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDIVISION TWO OF THIS SECTION, THE COMMISSIONER
SHALL ADOPT ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS AND THOSE RULES HAVING THE FORCE AND
EFFECT OF STANDARDS AND CRITERIA TO CARRY OUT THE PURPOSES OF SUCH STAN-
DARDS, WHICH SHALL REQUIRE:
  (1)  THAT AREAS CONTAINING LEAD CONTAMINATED SOIL SHALL HAVE LEVELS OF
LEAD CONTAMINATION NOT GREATER THAN TWO HUNDRED PARTS  PER  MILLION  FOR

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
