Radon Exposure Help Sought

Harrisburg, Ill. —

State Rep. Brandon Phelps (D-Harrisburg) is sponsoring legislation that will help ensure healthier radon-free living standards for renters here in the state of Illinois.

"I feel that it is very important that those who choose to rent here in Illinois are covered by safeguards much like this, so tenants will not have to worry about their health and complications that could arise as a result of renting an apartment or house that might be contaminated with radon," said Phelps.

"This measure is not about requiring more regulations and standards to burden landlords, but more importantly, it is about the safety this measure will provide for both parties involved when they enter any lease agreement."
