This is not the time to limit the Environmental Protection Agency’s scope or throttle back its efforts. Americans should empower the agency to do more on behalf of our families and our standard of living. The agency’s successes are worthy of celebration; the cost of retreat is staggering. Did you know we could save an estimated 5.5 million IQ points by permanently removing lead paint and dust from homes? The economic return on this investment is estimated at $68 billion. For every $1 invested in lead reduction, there is up to an estimated $221 return on that dollar.
