Iowa state senator Matt McCoy has introduced a bill requiring radon testing in Iowa’s schools.

If the schools twice test at above 4 picocuries per liter, they would be required to install radon remediation systems.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and Iowa homes contain the highest levels of radon in the country.
