Philadelphia City Council will continue a hearing on lead paint regulations for rental properties in the city on Monday, June 13. If city council passes the legislation, it would require landlords to certify that property does not have dangerous levels of lead before it’s rented. Dr. Carla Campbell, a pediatrician at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, says 90 percent of Philadelphia homes are contaminated with some level of lead, putting children in danger. Groups opposed to the lead certification bill say it would be too expensive. There is no indication on when it might be brought to a vote. Click here to learn more.
