Paint Companies Seek Overturn Of Cleanup Plan


PROVIDENCE - Three former lead paint manufacturers have asked a judge to strike down a $2.4 billion cleanup plan requested by the state.

The proposal would force Sherwin-Williams and two other companies to pay for the inspection and cleanup of roughly a quarter-million older homes believed to contain toxic lead paint. The companies believe the state's proposal is legally flawed and needs to be thrown out or at least altered.

But Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein appeared unlikely to grant the companies' request during arguments Friday.

Silverstein said the companies' concerns would best be addressed by two public health experts who were specially appointed to evaluate the state's plan and make recommendations to him.
