Lead Paint Deregulation
On the Amendment
Senate Roll Call No. 173
111th Congress, 2nd Session

Agreed to: 60-37 (see complete tally)
Amendment no. 4253 from Sen. Collins (R-ME) barred the use of funds by the Environmental Protection Agency to enforce lead paint regulations against certain contractors. While this may have benefited a small number of businesses, it stopped the EPA from doing its job of protecting the American public from a toxic chemical and probable human carcinogen. The American people should have confidence that the products around them are not poisonous to their families or themselves.


On May 27, 2010, the Senate adopted the Collins amendment to deregulate lead paint by a vote of 60-37. NO IS THE PRO-ENVIORNMENT VOTE.
