IMO, this is just another wave of attacks on honest, third party home inspectors. Now it is radon checks. This is a way to shove and push us out of their industry, or, so to speak, “brotherhood”. They want the testing, so as to do the mitigation, needed or not. Requirement of being a member of an association to participate in any state entity is a violation of Kansas right to work laws, an can cause lawsuits. The testing of a home by a mitigation company is a huge conflict of interest, such as are contractors, agents, engineers, insurance agents, appraisers are doing home inspections. Apparently all Kansas lawmakers think conflicts of interests are a way of life.
It is amazing to me that you can only learn so much about radon, and the typical home buyer and agent will not care about any jargon, except the results. Electronic testers are programable, and can fail. EPA regulations say any home that has radon test over 4.0 should be mitigated. Simple. Whoever pushed for these radon laws just wants the money from the testers who are willing to pay for it, and this money goes to pushing us little guys out of the way, further hurting small businesses.
This is just another example of a large member society pushing their weight around for the benefit of their industry. The consumers again will lose.
