Flint Congressman Dan Kildee has re-introduced legislation to change the federal rules governing lead in drinking water.
Lead exposure has been linked to serious health problems in children and adults.
The current federal action level is 15 parts per billion. Kildee wants the EPA to reduce that benchmark to five parts per billion by the year 2026.
Kildee’s bill would also tighten rules regarding water testing, service line inventories and improve public education
