    If they kept selling the paint with lead after it was determined to be a health hazard, they should have to remediate it.
    What I don’t understand is how people who knew there was lead in the paint on their walls, and knew it was dangerous, would just leave it there.

    Jack King, I think you assume that word spread rapidly to common citizens about the lead paint when it was first determined to be dangerous and hazardous. I think you also assume people were in a good enough financial position to remedy the problem on their own once they did find out.

    Lead paint was banned in the U.S. in 1978 but remains on the walls of many homes. I would say it works then.
