    Re: Lead

    Have you tried a dictionary? You will want "lead" as a verb.

    Re: Lead

    News headlines are often confusing. They use simple tenses and often use the Simple Present even for past events.

    ...concerns from residents have led the state... would be more correct grammatically.
