Mounting evidence that radon gas causes lung cancer has prompted lawmakers to action.

The legislature is considering a bill, whose prime sponsor is Rep. Ted Koffman (D-Bar Harbor) to set up a model radon standard for new residential construction. If approved, it would allow communities to adopt the radon gas standard as a local option similar to the Maine Model Building Code.
