The Environmental Protection Agency may have delayed enforcement of the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule or so-called "lead paint law." The action dispalys an odd inability by the EPA to understand its own law, or the industry to which it applies, and the reporting by trade organizations and certain media outlets of a "delay in the lead paint law" is simply wrong.
