 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 lead levels of ambient air 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 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 responsibility
 of the commissioner of environmental conservation, in consultation  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-TWO 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
 RESIDENTIAL  ZONED  AREAS  AND  ONE THOUSAND PARTS PER MILLION FOR AREAS
 ZONED FOR COMMERCIAL AND/OR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT;
   (2) THAT A LEAD DUST HAZARD AS DEFINED IN PART 40  CFR  745.101  SHALL
 NOT  BE  GREATER  THAN FIVE MICROGRAMS PER SQUARE FOOT ON FLOORS AND NOT
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.

 AN  ACT  directing  the  departments  of  environmental conservation and
   health to establish environmental standards for ambient lead and  lead
   contamination   in  soils;  and  providing  for  the  repeal  of  such
   provisions upon expiration thereof
 
   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, often resulting from lead paint, and
 coming into contact with  lead  on  exposed  surfaces.  The  legislature
 declares  that  it  shall  be  the responsibility of the commissioner of
 environmental conservation, in consultation  with  the  commissioner  of
 health,  to  adopt  standards for ambient lead and lead contamination of
 soil and windows and floors, in a manner that would be fully  protective
 of children's health, and in accordance with the procedures set forth in
 the environmental conservation law.
   § 2. a. No later than March 31, 2023, the departments of environmental
 conservation  and  health  shall  propose  new standards, and update any
 existing standards as appropriate,  for  dust  lead  hazards,  soil-lead
 hazards and ambient air quality standards for the level of lead in vari-
 ous  media that will result in blood lead levels that are no higher than
 a target that is fully protective of human health and which at a minimum
 include consideration of recommendations from the  centers  for  disease
 control.
