An Act to protect Human Health by Reducing Exposure to Arsenic (2003)

This bill speeds the phase-out of arsenic treated lumber by prohibiting the purchase of this product by retailers by fall 2003 and its re-sale as of April 2004. Arsenic is known to cause cancer, and children are exposed to it when they play on playgrounds and decks built with arsenic-treated lumber.
