Senate Bill 212 signed by Governor

The EMS/Fireman’s surcharge for NCC has been signed into law by the Governor, despite the fact that this is a doubling up from the existing fee currently being charged by NCC for the Fire/EMS.  The HBA/DE opposed this bill as an incorrectly levied fee because 95% of the expenses for operating the services are a result of vehicular accidents, not house fires.  The following is the activity and vote records on this bill.

Lead Paint Opt-Out update

24802 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 87 / Thursday, May 6, 2010 / Rules and Regulations

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY
40 CFR Part 745 [EPA–HQ–OPPT–2005–0049; FRL–8823–7]
RIN 2070–AJ55
Lead; Amendment to the Opt-Out and Recordkeeping Provisions in the
Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program
AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: EPA is finalizing several revisions to the Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program (RRP) rule that published in the Federal Register on April 22, 2008. The RRP rule established accreditation, training, certification, and recordkeeping requirements as well as work practice standards on persons performing renovations for compensation in most pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities. In this document, EPA is eliminating the ‘‘opt-out’’ provision that currently exempts a renovation firm from the training and work practice requirements of the rule where the firm obtains a certification from the owner of a residence he or she occupies that no child under age 6 or pregnant women resides in the home and the home is not a child-occupied facility. EPA is also requiring renovation firms to provide a copy of the records demonstrating compliance with the training and work practice requirements of the RRP rule to the owner and, if different, the occupant of the building being renovated or the operator of the child-occupied facility. In addition, the rule makes minor changes to the certification, accreditation and state authorization requirements.

DATES: This final rule is effective July 6, 2010.
