Lowes to pay $500,000 in EPA lead paint settlement

The home improvement chain, Lowes Home Centers, will be paying $500,000 in a settlement with the EPA over lead paint. Lead exposure can cause some serious health problems including death. What happened was that lowes couldn't show proof that the contractors they hired to work at 13 stores were certified by the EPA. The settlement is being used as a message to contractors and firms that lead certification is very important and it's the law. This could harm the employees or customers that go there often and it's a good thing the EPA caught it.
