The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported that six lead paint enforcement actions—for a combined total of $287,000 in settlements—were completed over the past year in California and Arizona.
 
The companies that made settlements allegedly failed to comply with federal regulations requiring them to protect the public from exposure to lead. In addition to the penalties, each company made corrections to their operations, including becoming EPA-certified, for those not already certified.
