Letters to the Editor

Dec 31, 1995

Let me tell you a little about my year. (1995). We worked hard on legislation and regulatory stuff and just in the last month got the State Legislature to pass two bills that we’d worked on for months! One to require all health insurance policies to cover lead screening and treatment (as well as immunisations) and another bill (our main priority) that requires doctors, hospitals and clinics to test all children for lead poisoning.

Now we’re working on the Governor to make sure she signs the bills. (The State Health Commission doesn’t like them, but they passed the legislature nearly unanimously.) We also got the state regulations for lead abatement worker and contractor certification promulgated this summer and they are supposed to start enforcing them tomorrow. Also, we raised enough $ to hire a second organiser to work with me.

Once again, your (wonderful) newsletter.

Not much is new here since I wrote the other letter, except that we got our Governor to sign the 2 bills, the Universal Screening bill is actually a very big thing for us. Citizen Action is definitely on the map now with respect to lead poisoning prevention.

Hey, you do one hot Newsletter. How do you manage to publish such a high quality and readable Newsletter so regularly? I would hate to be a lead industry boss in Australia.

Ralph Scott, Citizen Action, New Jersey, USA.
