Rhode Island AG Affirmed Commitment to Preserving Lead Rental Registry

Rhode Island Attorney General Peter F. Neronha announced his support for upholding and fully implementing the state’s lead rental registry, and he voiced concern over proposed changes from the House Finance Committee that would weaken the registry’s protections. The lead rental registry requires landlords to verify that their property is lead-safe, ensuring the well-being of children and other vulnerable populations. AG Neronha emphasized the lead rental registry’s critical role in safeguarding children from lead poisoning.
