All Md. toddlers to be tested for lead at ages 1 and 2

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Larry Hogan is announcing a new lead testing plan that calls for all Maryland children to be tested at ages 1 and 2.

The Republican governor announced the plan Monday at the start of National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week.

Previously, only children living in areas of the state considered to be at risk or who were enrolled in Medicaid had to be tested.
