Governor Chris Sununu signed into law Thursday morning new protections against childhood lead exposure.
At a signing ceremony in Claremont, the Governor championed the public health impact of the new law.
"We will, without a doubt, prevent a lot of children from getting lead poisoning,” he said. “That's a really good thing"
The legislation mandates lead screenings for all one and two year olds. It also lowers the blood-lead level that triggers state intervention.
