A bill that creates a new clearinghouse for information relating to lead poisoning has cleared one hurdle in the Oregon Legislature.  Representative Jason Conger of Bend co-carried House Bill 4105 that passed in the House on Monday.  Conger says the bill requires the Oregon Health Authority to unify and make available on their website, information about and preventative measures when building or remodeling K-12 structures.   "To particularly schools, to help the schools, especially maintenance staff or people who are doing renovations in schools, again, know what to look for, understand what the consequences lead poisoning can be and have some information about what to do about it if they have a problem."  Conger says he is passionate about this bill because he knows first hand what can happen when a child is exposed to lead poisoning.  When his daughter was a baby; she had a false-positive test for lead poisoning, and Conger did extensive research into the problem and the solutions.  The bill goes to the Senate next week.
