Congressman proposes making ATV's exempt from lead laws

LUBBOCK, TX. (KCBD) - New developments to a story NewsChannel 11 first brought you in January. We told you then about new federal regulations pertaining to lead that could impact any product for kids 12 and under. That includes ATV's.

Tuesday, Texas congressman Michael Burgess introduced a proposal to exempt ATV's from the list of children's products.
