In April 2010, the Wisconsin Legislature passed Senate Joint Resolution 65 which required the Elimination Plan Implementation and Oversight Committee to submit a report on the costs borne by the educational and criminal justice systems attributable to lead poisoning and methods to address lead paint hazards in housing.

A two-page Legacy of Lead Report summary (PDF, 10 MB) is also available.
Annually, the Medicaid Provider Blood Lead Testing Report is sent to Wisconsin health care providers who provide medical care to children enrolled in the Medicaid program. The individualized report summarizes the provider's blood lead testing data for children under age 6.
