Dear fellow Radon Professionals,
We are pleased to announce a general membership meeting on February 16th at 2 PM at the Cyrstal Community Center, 4800 Douglas Dr N, Minneapolis, MN 55429. The event is open to both members and non-members. Please watch your email for a registration link. Space is limited.
Trial Date Set:
It was just announced that the trial for the MARP lawsuit against the Radon Licensing Act will begin in September 2019. In the meantime, both sides will be gathering further evidence, deposing witnesses and preparing for trial. MARP’s attorney will be at the membership meeting and available to answer questions.
New Radon Testing Bill Introduced:
This week the legislature introduced a bill to require schools to conduct radon testing. Members of MARP will be meeting with the authors of the bill to provide our thoughts on this legislation as it moves through the process. You can read the bill (here)
Want A Refund:
Some MARP members have asked MDH about the possibility of a refund if they have pre-purchased the $75 system tags. Below is a response from MDH:
Here are some important points to help you make your decision.
· You will need to return the tags you purchased
· Refund processing will still take several weeks, if approved.
· We can’t refund convenience fees you paid to US Bank (if you paid with credit or check card). We will refund the $75 per tag only.
If the judge rules that we can regulate residential mitigation in the future, you’ll need to obtain tags right away. We will likely get a rush of orders (that could take a few weeks to process), so you may not have the tags in hand when you need them (you’d have to go back to homes and affix tags to finish the jobs when you do get the tags).
If you’d like to start the refund process now, let me know and send your tags back to MDH (Indoor Air Unit, PO Box 64975, St. Paul, MN 55164).
