Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, responsible for 21,000 deaths annually. Exposure to radon causes no immediate symptoms, but the long-term threat of lung cancer is significant to everyone.

The End Radon in Schools Act will protect our nation’s children, their teachers and other school staff from exposure to radon while at school. It will ensure schools are tested for radon and, if tests show dangerous levels of radon are present, successful mitigation steps will be applied in a timely manner.
