State Policy

State policy is central to sustaining and growing an effective infrastructure to fully implement radon risk reduction across the US. IEA is committed to support chapters, leaders in states without chapters, and legislators in enacting and implementing public policies that advance risk reduction.

IEA priorities for state policy change are:

IEA assists chapters in planning and implementing public policy advocacy work in their state. The association’s Government Affairs (GA) assistance is tailored to the needs and opportunities that exist in each state, and can include telephone and email consultation, webinar presentations on trends in other states and best practices, researching of policymakers and policies, document development and review, and as possible, in-person visits. IEA Chapters develop government affairs programs and goals. Public policy objectives and leadership are fundamental elements of IEA National’s partnership with each chapter’s strategy for enacting and implementing public policies that advance the cause of radon risk reduction.

IEA assists legislators, legislative staff, and other policymakers in understanding policy priorities, trends across states, and best practices and with developing policies and other documents.

IEA has developed the State Report Card to facilitate evaluation and rating of state radon policies and risk according to objective criteria and publicize the results. IEA anticipates that this resource will assist policy makers, risk reduction advocates, radon professionals, radon programs, and other health and housing stakeholders in accomplishing expanded and improved efforts. The report card is updated annually.
