Introduced by Rep. Carolyn Jackson (D- Hammond) and co-authored by Rep. Michael Aylesworth (R- Hebron) and Rep. Mike Andrade (D- Munster), HB 1117 will create a state fund to pay for lead testing and remediation in schools.  Since this is not a budget year, money would not be allocated to this fund yet, but it could receive grants or donations.

Final Update (as of 2/2):

Despite not being heard in the House Public Health Committee, HB 1117 is advancing with SB 5, which has amended in the concept of this bill!
