Assemblymember Chiu Announces Deal to Remove Lead Paint Proposal from Fall Ballot

(Sacramento) Assemblymember David Chiu announced a deal to keep a lead paint industry backed initiative off this November’s ballot. As a result of today’s announcement, all stakeholders have agreed to work collaboratively to resolve the issues related to lead paint in older homes around the state. “Today’s announcement that the ballot measure has been pulled is a very welcome one, since we will now have time to engage in a more deliberative process to address the significant problems related to lead paint in older homes in California. We need to ensure that future generations will be protected, and I look forward to those discussions.” To watch all of Assemblymember Chiu’s comments watch this Assembly Access Video http://www.asmdc.org/chiu
