Children face disproportionate risks from contaminants such as air pollution and lead paint. The health consequences to the country┐s 74 million children are significant. In 1997, EPA created the Office of Children┐s Health and convened the Children┐s Health Protection Advisory Comm. to provide advice and recommendations to assist in developing regulations, guidance, and policies to address children┐s health. In April 1997, the Pres. signed Exec. Order 13045, creating an interagency Task Force to recommend fed. strategies for protecting children. This testimony assesses the extent to which EPA has used the Advisory Comm. and addressed the committee┐s key recommendations. It also includes information about the Task Force. Illustrations.
