I. Text of S. 3080, as reported to Senate..

Amdt. No. 1227_-
II. Report 92–852, accompanying S. 3080---





Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10 a.m., in room 4200, New Senate Office Building, Senator Edward M. Kennedy (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding:

Present: Senators Kennedy, Hughes, Dominick, and Schweiker.

Staff members present: Le Roy G. Goldman, professional staff member, and Jay B. Čutler, minority counsel.

Senator KENNEDY. The subcommittee will come to order.

I am pleased to open hearings by the Subcommittee on Health this morning, on the amendment to the Lead Based Paint Poisoning Prevention Act.

The bill before the committee, S. 3080, was introduced on January 26, 1972, and has received the support of 31 Senators-eight Republicans and 23 Democrats.

The bill's principal purpose is to authorize the continuation of federally supported lead based paint poisoning programs that were initiated with the enactment of Public Law 91-695, in January 1971.

Similar legislation for the continuation of these programs has been introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressman William Ryan of New York. In addition, I understand that Congressman William Barrett, chairman of the Housing Subcommittee in the House of Representatives, is also developing legislation for continuing the Federal support of lead based paint poisoning programs.

I am deeply concerned about the need to provide support in the battle against this tragic disease. Lead based paint poisoning strikes thousands of American children each year, primarily because our society has refused to take the steps needed to end the damage caused by this hazard.

The bill before the committee authorizes $50 million for a Federal attack on this problem.

The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare is authorized $45 million for screening, testing, and education programs. And the Department of Housing and Urban Development is authorized $5 million for continuing to research and develop the most efficient and effective procedures for covering up exposed surfaces in residences that have been covered with lead based paint.

A second and vitally critical aspect of the legislation is to seek protection against lead based paint poisoning for future generations of American children.


The amendment to the Lead Based Paint Poisoning Prevention Act that I introduced last January strictly limits the allowable amounts of lead contained in paints used on interior residential surfaces and on those exterior surfaces readily accessible to children. Under current law, such paints may not contain more than 1 percent lead by weight. The pending bill requires manufacturers of those paints to limit the lead content to no more than 0.06 percent lead by weight.

It is hoped that the new limit will begin to insure the removal of the hazards of lead paint poisoning from the list of maladies that threaten the Nation's 11 million pre-school-age children.

The third feature of my bill authorizes State health agencies to operate centralized laboratory facilities to analyze and detect lead in samples of paint and in samples of blood drawn from suspected victims.

At this point I order a copy of S. 3080 and the public law establishing this program printed in the record.
