Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Renter notification, New York vapor intrusion

After being vetoed twice, state lawmakers have passed a third version of a bill designed to inform renters about TCE hazards and other pollution they may unknowingly live with.

The renter notification bill passed the Assembly by a 140-0 vote and the Senate by 62-0 during last-minute voting late Monday and early Tuesday before summer recess.

The bill was authored by Assemblywoman Donna A. Lupardo, D-Endwell and Sen. Thomas W. Libous, R-Binghamton. Both represent districts where TCE fumes have polluted properties through a process called vapor intrusion.
