There is a proposed Senate Bill for Oregon to require a lead paint-based paint survey prior to a building demolition.
If SB871 passes it means that buildings must be surveyed for lead paint, in addition to the already required asbestos survey before being demolished. This information would then be available to the public by request.
In short, if you are living next to a building scheduled for demolition, you have the right to know if there is asbestos in that building. With the passing of SB871, you will have the right to know if there is lead paint in that building too.
Listed below are the bill sponsors who are waiting to hear from you. Each name is linked to their email. Please take a moment to let them know that you support this important legislation.
