Trump Administration Unveils Federal Action Plan to Reduce Childhood Lead Exposure

 Highlights Ongoing Lead Work in Lancaster and Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (December 19, 2018) — Today, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler, U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson, and U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan unveiled the Trump Administration’s Federal Lead Action Plan to Reduce Childhood Lead Exposures and Associated Health Impacts (Lead Action Plan).

“The Federal Lead Action Plan will enhance the Trump Administration’s efforts to identify and reduce lead contamination while ensuring children impacted by lead exposure are getting the support and care they need,” said EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “EPA will develop an implementation plan by March 2019 that will enable us to track our progress and update the public as we work to carry out the action plan and mitigate childhood lead exposure.”

“The Trump administration’s new Lead Action Plan reflects our strong commitment to preventing future generations from being affected by lead exposure,” said HHS Secretary Alex Azar. “We know that lead exposure at a young age can result in serious effects on IQ, attention span, and academic achievement. We need to continue taking action to prevent these harmful effects. Identifying lead-exposed children, connecting them with appropriate services, and preventing other children from being exposed to lead are important public health priorities for this administration.”
“HUD is delighted to join the other members of the Task Force in issuing this cohesive Federal Lead Action Plan,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “Implementing this plan will help federal agencies, along with our state and local partners, advance efforts to remediate home health hazards and keep children safe from lead poisoning.”

Administrator Wheeler, Secretary Carson, and Deputy Secretary Hargan released the Lead Action Plan in front of a crowd of more than 30 dedicated career employees from EPA, HHS, and HUD who helped develop the plan.

“By educating the public about the dangers of lead paint, we hope to increase awareness about the dangers of lead poisoning in children,” said EPA’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Cosmo Servidio. “One component of this initiative is raising awareness among parents and guardians about the actionable steps they can take to reduce exposure to lead and the importance of getting their children tested.”

EPA’s Mid-Atlantic Region has designed and implemented a creative place-based approach to reduce exposure to lead, focusing on increasing awareness of and compliance with EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. The Region conducted outreach, compliance assistance, and inspection and enforcement resources for at-risk geographic areas, starting with Lancaster and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In Lancaster, EPA sought to reduce exposure to lead by working with State and especially local officials and organizations.  This pilot led to the development of a collaborative Federal regional initiative with Housing & Urban Development and Health & Human Services.
EPA is also working with local partners to raise awareness of EPA’s lead-based paint rules in Philadelphia neighborhoods. Outreach efforts include in-person meetings, distributing technical assistance information, visits to paint/hardware stores, awareness training for city inspectors and providing information to contractors and property management firms, as well as providing information to daycare centers, childcare and healthcare focused organizations.

About the Lead Action Plan

Developed through cross-governmental collaboration of the President’s Task Force on Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks to Children (Task Force), which includes 17 federal departments and offices, the Lead Action Plan is a blueprint for reducing lead exposure and associated harms by working with a range of stakeholders, including states, tribes and local communities, along with businesses, property owners and parents.
 The four goals of the Lead Action Plan are:
  • Goal 1: Reduce Children’s Exposure to Lead Sources
  • Goal 2: Identify Lead-Exposed Children and Improve their Health Outcomes
  • Goal 3: Communicate More Effectively with Stakeholders
  • Goal 4: Support and Conduct Critical Research to Inform Efforts to Reduce Lead Exposures and Related Health Risks.
EPA is committed to developing an implementation plan – by March 2019 – that includes performance metrics for monitoring progress and demonstrating accountability for EPA actions identified in the Lead Action Plan. The agency also commits to providing periodic updates on the progress of these actions.

The Lead Action Plan will help federal agencies work strategically and collaboratively to reduce exposure to lead and improve children’s health. EPA and members of the Task Force will continue to engage with and reach out to community stakeholders such as non-governmental organizations.

Background

The President’s Task Force on Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks to Children, which was established in 1997 by Executive Order 13045, is the focal point for federal collaboration to promote and protect children’s environmental health. The Task Force is currently co-chaired by Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

Since the 1970s, the United States has made tremendous progress in lowering children’s blood lead levels. Lead exposure, particularly at higher doses, continues to pose a significant health and safety threat to children, preventing them from reaching the fullest potential of their health, their intellect, and their future. No safe blood lead level in children has been identified.

Now, however, tackling the problem at this stage requires a coordinated federal-wide effort that evaluates the predominant sources of lead and also includes improving identification and treatment of children identified as lead exposed. It requires a more robust and coordinated communication with parents and others regarding the risks and methods to reduce exposure and a collaborative multi-agency research plan – as outlined by the Lead Action Plan.

PUC Explores More Uniformity Among Utility Assistance Programs for Low-Income Customers Shopping for Competitive Electric Suppliers

December 21, 2018

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has approved a motion from Commissioner David W. Sweet seeking to provide more uniform retail electric shopping standards for customers participating in electric distribution companies’ (EDCs) Customer Assistance Programs (CAPs).  CAPs are intended to provide eligible low-income customers with lower monthly payments and arrearage forgiveness.
EDCs periodically submit default service plans (DSPs) to the Commission outlining their electric generation procurement processes and associated programs tied to their provision of default service for customers, including those in CAPs, who have not switched to competitive suppliers. The Commission voted 5-0 to adopt the motion, which proposes certain criteria all EDCs with CAP requirements should follow in their future DSPs to better ensure CAP customers switching to a competitive supplier do not pay higher rates for electric generation and to keep down costs ultimately paid by all customers.

Today’s motion directs the PUC’s Law Bureau to prepare a Proposed Policy Statement for the Commission’s consideration no later than Feb. 28, 2019, setting forth specific areas of uniformity in CAP shopping practices that EDCs with CAP requirements should have in future DSPs, including:
  • A requirement that the CAP shopping product have a rate that is at or below the EDC’s Price to Compare (PTC) at all time periods of the contract between the EGS and the customer;
  • A provision that the contract between the EGS and the CAP customer contains no early termination or cancellation fees; and
  • A provision that, at the end of the contract, the CAP customer may reenroll with the EGS at a product that meets the same requirements as outlined above, switch to another EGS offering a product that meets those requirements or be returned to default service.
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission balances the needs of consumers and utilities; ensures safe and reliable utility service at reasonable rates; protects the public interest; educates consumers to make independent and informed utility choices; furthers economic development; and fosters new technologies and competitive markets in an environmentally sound manner.
