Governor Hochul was in Rochester yesterday to tout her plan to prevent lead poisoning.
Hochul says a program started in Rochester back in 2005 served as the model.
Her plan requires landlords to remediate any sources of lead poisoning, and makes state funding available to them
Governor Hochul also says affordable housing is a big priority for her administration.
She said she wants to attack the problem in several ways.
Hochul aims to have 800,000 new housing units built statewide over the next decade.
Under her plan, local governments will have to meet home-creation targets
