- New York State Toxic Mold Task Force Report
December 2010. 150 pages. This report is produced by the New York State Toxic Mold Task Force to the Governor and Legislature. The main goals of the Task Force were to summarize and assess existing evidence and information relevant to the tasks listed in the law and to assess the feasibility of possible recommendations for any further actions to be taken by the state legislature or state agencies based on its analysis. To achieve these goals, the Task Force activities were organized into four main areas of inquiry: (1) health effects of molds in indoor environments; (2) exposure limits and assessment of mold in buildings; (3) approaches to mold mitigation and remediation; (4) building codes, regulations and other actions taken by other governments and private-sector organizations that relate to building mold problems.
