400 people die in Iowa every year from radon induced lung cancer, but lifesaving radon legislation is in danger of not passing the Iowa Senate.

We urgently need your help to save this bill.

Everyday kids go to school and breathe in this deadly gas. This bill would require testing in schools and help with the cost of mitigation so that our kids can learn in a healthy environment. It also adds radon requirements to new construction and creates an educational awareness fund to help Iowans learn more about the dangers of radon.

The entire state of Iowa is in an EPA Hazard Zone 1 for the highest potential threat of radon.

Will you contact your senator and tell them they need to put the heath of Iowans, especially our children, first?

We need your help today.
