Protect children from radon exposure in schools!

Hello. My name is [NAME], and I’m calling to urge you to support mandatory radon testing in schools.  

In the past decade, 5 bills requiring testing in PA schools have been introduced, without receiving either a hearing or a committee vote. This needs to change. Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, taking the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. I recently read in Trib Live that Pennsylvania has the third-highest radon levels in the country, but no mandatory testing in public or private buildings.  

For the sake of our children and educators, who spend over 1,000 hours a year in school buildings, we need to implement measures of protection against radon. Mandatory testing and remediation will save lives. Thank you for your consideration.
