The 2015 Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 2931 so that elevated radon levels in Oregon schools would be known. House Bill 2931 later became Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 332.166-167. As directed by this statute, all school districts in Oregon must develop a plan to accurately measure school buildings for elevated radon levels. Under the statute, school districts must submit a plan to Oregon Health Authority (OHA) by September 1, 2016.
Per ORS 332.166-167, actual testing of schools must be done on or before January 1, 2021 and the testing results sent to OHA and posted on the school or school district's website. This plan will develop the protocols necessary for compliance.
