Background Information. The Child Lead Exposure Elimination Commission's Five-Year Action Plan builds upon the work of the former Child Lead Poisoning Elimination Board with 51 specific action steps to be taken to create a state free of lead exposure to benefit the health of Michigan’s children. The Action Plan places a priority on the prevention of exposure before children are lead poisoned. To gather feedback on the Action Plan, a series of public forums is being held across the state for federal, state, local and community leaders, healthcare providers, private sector/academic experts, privacy law experts, local health departments, childcare centers and homeowners and tenants to gather and provide input on the next steps for implementation.
