Policy Update: Lead Bill Becomes Law in Philadelphia
In late September, the Philadelphia City Council unanimously passed a bill requiring all landlords test rental properties built prior to 1978 for lead every four years. The bill, signed into law by Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, went into effect October 1, 2019. The bill will impact approximately 22,000 rental units in the City housing children six years old or younger. Philadelphia is the largest city to pass a comprehensive lead prevention law. The Nursing-Legal Partnership worked closely with clients, councilmembers, and coalitions to successfully urge the passage of the bill. Nursing-Legal Partnership attorneys and Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors submitted written and oral testimony on the proposed bill.
