Getting the lead out: New EPA rules mean stiffer penalties, requirements for local contractors (access required)

By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — Vince Busby was none too happy about having to spend last Friday in a classroom instead of out in the field making money. Busby owns Distinctive Building Services and remodels a lot of older homes from the 1960s and ‘70s. In addition to losing a day’s work, he also had to spend $240 on the eight-hour class, which covered new Environmental Protection Agency requirements that likely will add to his operating costs. “They’re forcing it down our throats,” said Busby. “It doesn’t really change anything.”
