    Dear Interested Parties,

    The public comment period for the Draft Lead Chemical Action Plan (CAP) closed on October 6, 2008. We are carefully reading all the comments we received. We are responding to the comments and preparing the final Lead CAP.

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']I would like to restate that we are not recommending any ban on any lead ammunition. Our priority is finding children with elevated blood lead levels and preventing children’s exposure to lead based paint. Our position on this will not change in the final version . We plan to work with appropriate stakeholders over the next year or so to develop solutions to the threat posed by old lead paint. [/FONT]

    The NRA has recently requested that we remove all references to lead ammunition from the Lead CAP. Ammunition is the second largest use of lead in the US and we cannot ignore it in the Lead CAP. A chemical action plan is supposed to be a comprehensive look at all the uses. The Lead CAP would not be complete if we ignored the second largest use of lead. There was discussion in the CAP development process about how lead ammunition might impact wildlife populations, and to strike that discussion from the public record would be misleading.

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']The CAP process has worked as it should. The full range of lead uses in Washington was explored, a wide range of options was put on the table for discussion, the public was engaged in that discussion, and final decisions are being made based on that discussion, with a focus on the most pressing threats of lead exposure.[/FONT]

    [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']Sincerely, [/FONT]

    They've heard our arguments, and are going to be ignoring them anyways.
