Dear Radon Colleague,
I am proud to announce that we have officially started the Minnesota Association of Radon Professionals. This has been a long time coming and now our industry can finally have a strong voice. The new Association is dedicated to providing advocacy, government relations, education and awareness for the radon industry in Minnesota.
We made some good strides this year. We were able to stop the costly Minnesota Radon Licensing Act and with cooperation from the Minnesota Department of Health we passed a modified licensing bill. I know this will save radon professionals thousands of dollars every year.
Of course, the Association, the lobbying, and other benefits have a cost. I joined as a founding member for $500 along with nearly a dozen of others in the industry. We are also offering a Standard Membership for $125 per year.
Please join me in moving our industry forward and joining the Association today. You can join and pay online using the following link: http://

Second Topic: We received the following email from the MN Department of Health. Here is what it said:
This message is to inform you that a revised Request for Comments has been published in the State Register and is posted along with the revised Minnesota Licensing Act (statute) an updated draft of the Radon Licensing Rules on the MDH webpage here: http://www.health.state.mn.us/
Attached to this message is a copy of the State Register posting that includes further details on the rule making process. (Download the PDF here)
Interested persons or groups may submit comments or information on these possible rules in writing until further notice is published in the State Register that the Department intends to adopt or to withdraw the rules. The Department will not publish a notice of intent to adopt the rules until more than 60 days have elapsed from the date of this request for comments. The Department has convened an advisory committee to comment on the possible rules.
If, after you review the document (It’s less than 2 pages)… please send your thoughts and comments to Walt or Noah (email addresses at the end of the email message) and we will review them and compile everyone’s feedback to take to future meetings with the MN Dept of Health.
Thank you for you support of Minnesota’s Radon Industry.
Interim President, Minnesota Association of Radon Professionals
