WACO - A new law concerning lead paint has many property owners concerned.
The EPA law requires contractors and rental property owners to receive special training to become certified for dealing with their paint.
The mandate only applies to facilities built before 1978.
Officials believe the lead-based paint contains hazardous chemicals that endanger citizens.
The Waco Tribune reports the certification is estimated to cost $730 dollars.
Those who are caught without it can face a fine up to $37,000.
