Renovating, repairing or painting a home, child care facility or school containing lead-based paint??
On April 22, 2010, each painter or contractor will be required to be certified in order to do contract painting and renovating of homes that were built before 1978. Federal law will require that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

Are we going to far with some of the certifications? Sure makes a person wonder just how far we need to go and how much the federal government needs to get involved. Your comments for or against would sure be appreciated.
