American Radon Policy Campaign

The ARPC is AARST’s program to raise funds to support federal and state policy that advances radon risk reduction. The program ensures continuity of federal funding and enacting protective state policy require that someone lobby legislators to introduce and pass legislation. Often, this requires the services of a professional lobbyist who represents the radon industry. ARPC Advertisers have supported lobbying work on Capitol Hill in Washington DC for almost a decade; these efforts helped open doors to new federal policy while delivering $70 million for SIRG. Now and in the future, ARPC funds will also support AARST Chapter lobbying work at the state level. Read about the good work this program has enabled for over a decade. MORE
