SB 247 – Protecting NH Kids from Lead Poisoning

The Conservation Law Foundation is making strong progress on our bill to protect New Hampshire kids from the tragedy of lead poisoning, and we need your help.

On November 8, the House Finance Committee will vote on an amended – and strengthened – version of SB 247 .

Please call and ask the NH House Finance Committee III  to support SB 247.

This bill has the power to change the lives of children throughout New Hampshire by:

  • Greatly increasing the number of kids screened for lead poisoning, ensuring that all children receive the protection they need, and that no NH child falls through the cracks
  • Modernizing NH’s lead regulation to align with the current recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control
  • Requiring measures, including at schools and child care facilities, to identify and address any problems with lead in drinking water
  • Establishing a loan guarantee program to help homeowners and landlords eliminate lead hazards

Thanks for your help!
