ARPC Drive Continues
The 2022 American Radon Policy Campaign drive continues. We want to thank those stepping up to the call!
Your generous contribution for 2022 continues the very important work we do as an industry to continue to have experienced representation in Washington DC and state capitols across the US. It will help immeasurably to tell the story of radon risk and explain what actions can help reduce risk (and which ones increase risk).
Five Strategies to be Proactive in Inflationary Times
Robin Royals, President, RC Royals & Associates, LLC
In banking, business management capabilities are measured by how a business performs in good and bad times. It is much harder to sustain consistent performance in challenging economic situations. We would analyze a spread of financial statements spanning a five- to six-year period to find the operating performance trend over an extended period. The hope was to see how management reacted to deliver consistent results under both circumstances. Can the company manage the expense line as well as the top line when revenue falls during more challenging economic times? MORE

The VI Pathway Mini-Series
Part 1: Transactional Considerations
David R. Gillay, Barnes & Thornburg LLP
This is the first in a series of three articles focusing on an unseen villain known as vapor intrusion to provide a look into key transactional considerations related to this environmental health hazard. Vapor intrusion (VI) is the migration of volatile chemicals from subsurface soil and groundwater into buildings. It shares many common characteristics with the intrusion of naturally occurring radon gas into buildings. This emerging contamination “pathway” presents significant challenges, complicates property transactions and securing and maintaining regulatory closure of contaminated sites, and increases litigation and legal risks. VI issues are far-reaching and have affected thousands of sites across the country. Successfully dealing with VI issues requires a basic understanding of the complex science, rapidly changing regulatory landscapes at the state and federal levels, and evolving legal doctrines that may increase your liabilities.
