House Bill 448 has been introduced in the state of Kentucky, which would eliminate the installation of lead wheel weights within the state. The bill would become effective on January 1, 2013, if passed this session.
The bill has been forwarded to the Kentucky Transportation Committee for review. The committee could also decide to eliminate the sale and distribution of lead wheel weights into or out of the state, as was done in states like Maine and Illinois.
