BILL NUMBER: S401 TITLE OF BILL : An act requiring the state fire prevention and building code council to implement rules and regulations regarding radon-resistant features in newly constructed homes PURPOSE : To require new home builders to use radon resistant features when building new homes. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1 directs the state fire prevention and building code council to develop and implement rules and regulations concerning the use of radon resistant building features in new home construction. JUSTIFICATION : Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas which is omitted from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. This gas typically moves through the ground and seeps into homes through tiny cracks or holes in the foundation. Any home, new or old can have a radon problem, and homes across the country have been found to have high levels of radon. In fact, on January 13, 2005, the Surgeon General of the United States issued a Health Advisory, warning Americans about the health risk of exposure to radon in indoor air.
