Lawmaker Seeks Crackdown on Toys with Lead Paint

February 26, 2008

The Indiana House of Representatives has approved a bill amendment that would allow individuals made sick by toys with lead paint to sue importers and wholesalers of those toys.  The provision was added today to a bill that already seeks to prevent childhood access to lead base paint.  That bill requires lead paint testing in day care centers and rental properties.  The addition of penalties regarding toys with lead paint was made my Representative Shelli Vandenburgh of Crown Point.  While the amendment regarding lead paint in toys was approved, the full bill will be voted on in the House later this week.
