EPA Lead Hazard Standards Opening Brief (Case: 19-71930)

The lead hazard standards updated in June 2019 determine whether lead in homes, child-care facilities, and surrounding soil poses a risk. But the standards the Trump administration unveiled are too lax to protect families. The lawsuit was filed in the 9th Circuit on behalf of A Community Voice, California Communities Against Toxics, Healthy Homes Collaborative, New Jersey Citizen Action, New York City Coalition to End Lead Poisoning, WE ACT for Environmental Justice, the Sierra Club, and United Parents Against Lead.
