State Senator May Calls for Funding to Replace NY’s Lead Pipes


State Senator Rachel May is calling for her colleagues in the state legislature to provide funding to replace lead pipes throughout the state.

Senator May said at a press conference that “lead poisoning can cause hyperactivity, mood swings, and violent behavior and it’s believed to be a significant factor in our rising youth crime rate. Our kids, their parents, their neighbors, their schools all deserve a chance at a lead free life.”

The last time New York provided new grants to replace lead pipes was 2019.
