ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. Leaded paint in housing remains as the last major source of lead exposure to young children.

Lead hazard control programs are looking for ways to make this housing safer without placing an undue financial burden on the property owners or tenants. On August 10, 2009, a petition was submitted to EPA www.regulations.gov; search for EPA– HQ–OPPT–2009–0655) to lower the definition of lead-based paint in pre1978 ‘‘target’’ housing to some value below the current value of 1 mg/cm 2 or 0.5% by weight (42 U.S.C. 4822(c)), and to lower the lead hazard control standards and clearance standards for lead in dust on floors and window sills in such housing and in pre-1978 childoccupied facilities below the current values of 40 and 250 mg/ft 2 (micrograms per square foot), respectively (40 CFR 745.65(b) and 745.227(e)(8)(viii), and 24 CFR 35.1320(b)(2)(i)), and below the current clearance standard for window troughs of 400 mg/ft2 (40 CFR 45.227(e)(8)(viii), and 24 CFR 35.1320(b)(2)(i)). The HUD Secretary may reduce the level that defines lead-based paint in target housing (42 U.S.C. 4822(c)), and the EPA Administrator identifies the leadbased paint hazard standards (15 U.S.C. 2683), and the lead-based paint standard (15 U.S.C.2683), and the leadbased paint standard in child-occupied facilities.

SUMMARY: The proposed information collection requirement described 
below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department 
is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal.
    Leaded paint in housing remains as the last major source of lead 
exposure to young children. Efforts to reduce childhood lead poisoning 
have focused on controlling lead paint hazards, specifically lead dust 
and deteriorated lead-based paint. Lead hazard control programs are 
looking for ways to make this housing safer without placing an undue 
financial burden on the property owners or tenants. On August 10, 2009, 
a petition was submitted to EPA www.regulations.gov; search for EPA-HQ-
OPPT-2009-0655) to lower the definition of lead-based paint in pre-1978 
``target'' housing to some value below the current value of 1 mg/cm 2 
or 0.5% by weight (42 U.S.C. 4822(c)), and to lower the lead hazard 
control standards and clearance standards for lead in dust on floors 
and window sills in such housing and in pre-1978 child-occupied 
facilities below the current values of 40 and 250 mg/ft 2 (micrograms 
per square foot), respectively (40 CFR 745.65(b) and 
745.227(e)(8)(viii), and 24 CFR 35.1320(b)(2)(i)), and below the 
current clearance standard for window troughs of 400 mg/ft2 (40 CFR 
45.227(e)(8)(viii), and 24 CFR 35.1320(b)(2)(i)). The HUD Secretary may 
reduce the level that defines lead-based paint in target housing (42 
U.S.C. 4822(c)), and the EPA Administrator identifies the leadbased 
paint hazard standards (15 U.S.C. 2683), and the lead-based paint 
standard (15 U.S.C.2683), and the lead-based paint standard in child-
occupied facilities.
    In a response dated October 22, 2009, EPA, writing on behalf of 
itself and HUD, agreed to study the issues and decide whether the lead 
hazard standards and/or the lead-based paint standard should be
