Ohio governor Mike Dewine formed a new board, the Lead Advisory Committee, to help prevent and treat lead poisoning, according to local television station WCMH. The committee will advise the governor on the state's efforts to remediate lead-paint contamination.

Governor Dewine says they plan to build on investments included in the budget to make Ohio homes lead-safe.

Ohio will invest $25 million to prevent and treat lead poisoning and remediate homes of toxic lead according to the governor’s office.

“It’s wrong that in 2019 there are still children in Ohio whose dreams are stifled because they live in homes where they are exposed to lead paint,” Governor Mike DeWine said. “We have an obligation to fix the lead problem. Through Ohio’s current investments and the recommendations of this committee, I believe Ohio can move the needle on lead poisoning.”
