LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1008, as introduced, Leyva. Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act: online lead information registry.
Existing law, the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act of 1991, establishes the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (Program), which is administered by the State Department of Public Health. Existing law requires the department to collect and analyze information to monitor appropriate case management efforts, to prepare a biennial report on the effectiveness of those efforts, and to post the report on the department’s internet website. Existing law requires the report to include specified information, including the total number of children tested for lead poisoning in each county, identified sources of lead exposure for those children having lead poisoning, and whether the sources of lead exposure identified in, on, or around a residence or location associated with a child with lead poisoning have been removed, remediated, or abated.
This bill would require the department to design, implement, and maintain an online lead information registry on the department internet website that enables the public to determine the lead inspection and abatement status for properties, and to use information it maintains for the registry to the extent that the department ensures that any personally identifying information is made unavailable to the public.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 105296 is added to the Health and Safety Code, immediately following Section 105295, to read:

105296.
 The department shall do both of the following:
(a) Design, implement, and maintain an online lead information registry that enables the public to determine the lead inspection and abatement status for properties. The registry shall be made available on the department’s internet website.
