New lead paint legislation may become law despite mayor's veto

New lead paint legislation, which was vetoed by Mayor Bloomberg, may end up becoming law anyway.

The City Council Committee on Housing and Buildings has passed a motion to override the mayor's veto. Bronx Councilwoman Madeline Provenzano opposes the bill, which would hold landlords more responsible for getting rid of lead paint. Provenzano, who chairs the committee, says the bill is unfair to building owners and landlords.

The motion to override the veto goes before the entire city council on February 4.
