Do people in Illinois take Radon seriously?

Yes, in 1997, the Illinois General Assembly passed the Radon Industry Licensing Act. This new law prohibits interfering with or causing another person to interfere with the successful completion of a Radon measurement or the installation or operation of a Radon mitigation system. This section applies to everyone, not just individuals that required to be licensed. Expensive penalties may be assessed against those who violate this act.
