Overview: New Lead Bill Passed by Philadelphia City Council On September 26, 2019, Philadelphia City Council passed a new lead bill which amends the current law regarding lead in rental properties in Philadelphia and is effective October 1, 2020. Since the bill was introduced, HAPCO and its partners in the real estate coalition spent eighteen months meeting with City Councilmembers and other stakeholders in an effort to amend the bill. Although we did not get what we wanted and are not particularly happy with the outcome, Councilmember Blondell Reynolds Brown made sure to include HAPCO in the process and in the end, did agree to various compromises and concessions.
