Description The Board intends to create a new regulation that is consistent with the US Environmental Protection Agency final rule “Lead; Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program,” which is mandated by House Bill 2432 passed by the 2009 Session of the Virginia General Assembly. The federal final rule will require contractors, real estate firms, property management companies, and rental housing providers to obtain a license to disturb painted surfaces in pre-1978 or child-occupied housing. There are also training and licensing requirements for individuals who disturb painted surfaces.
