Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Lead Poisoning Prevention Act. Provides that "elevated blood lead level" means a blood lead level in excess of the limits (currently, those considered within the permissible limits) established under State rules (currently, State and federal rules). Provides that "lead poisoning" means having an elevated blood lead level (rather than the condition of having blood lead levels in excess of those considered safe under State and federal rules). Provides that no later than 180 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Department of Public Health shall submit proposed amended rules to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules to update: the definition of elevated blood lead level to be in accordance with the most recent childhood blood lead level reference value from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the current requirements for the inspection of regulated facilities occupied by children based on the updated definition of elevated blood lead level or the history of lead hazards; and any other existing rules that will assist the Department in its efforts to prevent, reduce, or mitigate the negative impact of instances of lead poisoning among children. Provides that results identifying an elevated blood lead level (rather than in excess of the permissible limits set forth in rules adopted by the Department) shall be reported to the Department within 48 hours of receipt of verification. Provides that directors of clinical laboratories must report to the Department, within 48 hours of receipt of verification, all blood lead analyses equal to or above an elevated blood lead level (rather than above permissible limits set forth in rule) performed in their facility. Provides that all blood lead levels less than an elevated blood lead level (rather than the permissible limits set forth in rule) must be reported to the Department in accordance with rules adopted by the Department.
