Dear Members of the House Rules Committee:

Please prioritize 2SB109 - Radon Awareness Campaign such that it will be placed on the House Third Reading Calendar TODAY!

Radon is a deadly carcinogen that causes lung cancer in humans!  Tests have shown that 1 in 3 homes in Utah have high levels of radon.  Most Utahns are not aware of the dangers of radon or that they can test for and remediate radon.  2SB109 - Radon Awareness Campaign will fund the development and launch of a radon awareness campaign targeting all Utahns.  Knowledge your constituents gain from the campaign will protect their health by eliminating their exposure to radon gas.
 
As a 6 year survivor of radon induced lung cancer, I feel very strongly that we owe it to the citizens of Utah to educate them against the dangers of radon and the simple and relatively inexpensive solution to eliminating radon from our homes.  Had I known the dangers and the solution, we would have had our home mitigated before my cancer diagnosis and treatment, instead of after the fact.


 Thank you for your support.
