By Council Members Cornegy, Holden, Cumbo, Kallos, Ayala, Rosenthal, Levin, Rivera and Barron

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to agency referrals for blood lead screenings

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subchapter 1 of chapter 9 of title 17 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by a local law for the year 2019 amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to investigation by the department of health and mental hygiene of places in which children identified with elevated blood lead levels routinely visit and the regulation of lead-based paint hazards in facilities providing day care services, as proposed in introduction number 464-b for the year 2018, is amended by adding a new section 17-914 to read as follows:

§ 17-914 Lead screening referrals by agencies. When the parent or guardian of a child of applicable age seeks a service from a covered agency for such child, such agency shall  provide a pamphlet developed by the department or other materials approved by the department that include information on how to obtain a blood lead screening.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to investigation by the department of health and mental hygiene of places in which children identified with elevated blood lead levels routinely visit and the regulation of lead-based paint hazards in facilities providing day care services, as proposed in introduction number 464-b for the year 2018, takes effect, except that the commissioner of health and mental hygiene may take such actions as are necessary for implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
