Representative DeLauro Introduces Bill to Address Lead in Homes

Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) introduced the “Know Your Home Act” (H.R. 5704) on May 8 to address lead contamination in homes throughout the country. The proposal would require cities and towns that receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to digitize housing code violations from the most recent three years. Making this information easily accessible to the public would allow prospective renters to know if homes have a history of health and safety issues. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 4 million homes in the U.S. have high levels of lead that could expose children to lead poisoning.
