Residential remodelers, building contractors and other construction specialists could have more time to post their lead certification qualifications on a website as required by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee approved HF166, sponsored by Rep. Karen Clark (DFL-Mpls) Jan. 26. The bill, which now goes to the House floor, would amend the effective date of last years law that brought the state building code into compliance with the EPA requirements regarding lead removal certification reporting.

Lisa Frenette, government affairs director for the Builders Association of Minnesota said they need more time to get the word out to its members that the posting is required and for them to comply.

The new effective date would be Aug. 1, 2011, instead of Feb. 1, 2011.

A companion, SF139, sponsored by Sen. Ted Lillie (R-Lake Elmo), awaits action by the Senate Jobs and Economic Growth Committee.
