remediation. The goal is to investigate issues which would be involved in the development of mold regulations, and potentially licensing for Rhode Island. Each session would have a keynote speaker. IAQA Government Affairs has been asked to be one of the keynote speakers for a session date TBD in October or November. ALSO IN THE WORKS AT GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS IAQA Government Affairs is actively investigating changes to Oregon pesticide applicator licensing. As reported in the August edition, IAQA Government Affairs has coordinators and special advisors assigned to the implementation of various mold legislation already passed in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. We are especially attempting to get clarifications from the Maryland home improvement commission and mold licensing. We are also working on the new administrative radon rules in Minnesota, and researching proposed modified asbestos training requirements in Virginia. Lastly, IAQA Government Affairs and the Lead & Environmental Hazards Association (LEHA) are investigating policy interpretations affecting the use of encapsulants for lead-based paint in Massachusetts. The IAQA Government Affairs Committee's mission is more than only observing government activity that affects our members and the public. IAQA will take an active advocacy position when there is a consensus among our members. All IAQA members are welcome to join the committee, or to participate as special advisors on any particular government initiative. If you aren't a member of IAQA, join today!
