New Lead Paint Regulations

(NECN: Kenneth Craig, Worcester, Mass.) - Next month, contractors will have to follow new rules from the Environmental Protection Agency that require contractors, electricians or painters who do work on property with lead paint to get certified.

That certification isn't cheap. The classes and registration fees cost hundreds of dollars.

Reporter Kenneth Craig talked with some contractors today, and they'll have to create some cash, but the bigger issue appears to be that a lot of homes still have lead based paint.
