"While I respect the efforts of Agency employees, until there is a genuine commitment by Congress to producing results, I see little reason to celebrate," says Linnertz referring to NRAM awards ceremony. "People are needlessly dying. We urge the EPA Administrator to use the regulatory power granted by Congress to implement a national program that actually works.

Sara Speer Selber, President of BuildClean, a nonprofit organization promoting safe and healthy homes joins CanSAR in calling for government action to help protect Americans from indoor radon exposure. "Voluntary efforts just haven't convinced the public that the risk of radon exposure in the home from soil-gas entry as well as building materials is very real." says Selber.

The consensus among scientists is over 21,000 Americans die of radon-induced lung cancer annually.
