Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, by executive order, has re-established the state's commission focusing on reducing lead poisoning among children.
The previous commission was disbanded in 2006 because the state legislature did not renew the statute that created it.
The commission will have a statewide focus.
Snyder says the new commission will focus on the elimination, rather than prevention, of lead poisoning.
He says the commission will present its report by November, 2016.
