 Introduced  by  Sens.  BENJAMIN,  KRUEGER, MAY -- read twice and ordered
   printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Environ-
   mental 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 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-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:
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
