Monday began with a press conference with Rep. Bruce Braley at the Capitol where he rolled out his End Radon in Schools Act. This bill would require testing for radon in our schools and provide funding for mitigation.
Wednesday, 60 lawmakers and 18 volunteers attended our annual Legislative Breakfast at the Capitol. They had some great discussions around our priorities of prevention, early detection and access to care. I want to thank everyone who helped make it a huge success!
But the good news doesn’t stop there! One of our top priority bills, radon, was introduced in the Senate on Wednesday. Next, it heads to the Senate State Government Committee. We need your help to make sure this important piece of legislation makes it to the Senate floor for debate, so be looking for a call to action soon.
If you are interested in attending any legislative forums or meetings in your area, please let us know. We know that with your help, we can make huge strides in the fight against cancer in Iowa this session.
