Possible lead issue

Sen. Diaz has requested the Health Committee take up his bill S-292, which pertains to lead poisoning.  It would require the Commissioner of Health to report to the Attorney General whenever “in the opinion of the Commissioner” a manufacturer, distributor or retailer is using “improper measures” which could lead to possible lead poisoning.  What exactly “improper measures” are is entirely up to the Health Commissioner.  The bill is vague enough to be abused by politicians with an agenda.

For example, perhaps lead ammo should not be sold in cardboard boxes and should only be available in childproof plastic clamshell packages.  There already have been efforts to ban lead bullets so this line of thinking cannot be discounted.
