Can I exempt my home from the new rules?
a. No. Wisconsin no longer allows the opt-out rule for pre-1978 homes or facilities where children or pregnant women are present. The only way to opt out is to have your home tested for the presence of lead paint and other types of finishes. If your home tests negative or under the threshold requirement set by the State for lead contamination, lead-safe practices are not required.
