Pennsylvania officials are hoping to lower the risk of lead poisoning through mandated blood testing for children.
Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is backing legislation to require testing that meets federal guidelines. The administration is also working on ways for regional response teams to care for children with dangerous amounts of lead in their system.
Officials say about three in 10 children in the state have been tested for lead exposure, and just under five percent of them had elevated lead levels.
