"'Toxic' drywall, formaldehyde emissions, mold, asbestos, lead-based paint, radon, PCBs [polychlorinated biphenyls] in caulk, and many other indoor pollution problems have concerned federal policy makers and regulators during the last 30 years. Some problems have been resolved, others remain of concern, and new indoor pollution problems continually emerge. This report describes common indoor pollutants and health effects that have been linked to indoor pollution, federal statutes that have been used to address indoor pollution, key issues, and some general policy options for Congress."
