Dear Senator

Please prioritize 2SB109 - Radon Awareness Campaign such that it will be placed on the House Third Reading Calendar TODAY! So  doing will ensure the development and launch of a radon awareness campaign that will improve the knowledge your constituents have about radon and will protect their help by eliminating their exposure to radon gas.


·   
1/3 of houses in Utah have a radon problem based up on 30,000 radon tests over past 15 years.

·   Radon gas is a Class-A carcinogen.

·   Annually, more than 22,000 Americans die of radon-induced lung cancer.

·   There is a high and increasing rate of radon-induced lung cancer in Utah.

·   Surveys indicate that fewer than 20% of Utahns are aware of radon or that radon can be tested for and remediated.


Your support of 2SB109 will allow for the development and launch of a radon education and awareness campaign targeting all Utahns that will inform them about radon and ultimately protect them from exposure to radon gas.
