Mayor Bloomberg considers suing the City Council over lead paint law
The lead paint law passed by the City Council is once again facing opposition from the mayor.
Mayor Bloomberg had vetoed the bill, but the City Council voted in favor of overriding the veto. Under the law, if a building was constructed before 1960 and the landlord is not sure whether the paint inside is lead based then he or she must assume it is and fix it.
But now Mayor Bloomberg is thinking of taking legal action to stop the law from going into effect. A representative from the mayor's office told News 12 The Bronx that mayor has still not decided on whether to go forward with suing the City Council.
Protesters gathered at City Hall Wednesday to voice their outrage over the mayor's opposition to the lead paint bill.
