Rationality abounds here.

While I worked in the legislative affairs department of one of the 
largest school districts in the United States, we took the official 
position of opposing legislation to limit lead content in wet plumbing 
fixtures to 0.1% on the grounds that it would cost too much. Did it 
matter to us that there was no research into whether the cost was 
significant based on risk reduction, or if there even was a cost 
difference? Nope.
