A federal appeals court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency has 90 days to revise a policy designed to protect children from lead-based paint, per The New York Times.

Why it matters: The order by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco, according to the Times, is a sharp rebuke to the Trump administration, which had requested six years to reconsider what levels of lead exposure are acceptable for children.
