Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Tenants Radon Protection Act. Provides that before a lease is signed, a landlord shall provide to each tenant in a dwelling unit any records or reports pertaining to radon concentrations within the dwelling unit that indicate a radon hazard. Provides that if a tenant performs a radon test, the tenant shall provide to the landlord the test result within 10 days after receiving the result. Provides that before a lease is signed a landlord shall furnish each prospective tenant with a prescribed radon hazard disclosure form. Provides that nothing implies an obligation on a landlord or tenant to conduct any radon testing. Provides that a lease may be terminated under specified circumstances involving radon hazards. Provides that this is a limitation on home rule powers. Amends the Illinois Radon Awareness Act. Repeals a provision requiring landlords to give certain disclosures to tenants. Effective January 1, 2017.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill as introduced, with the following changes: Provides that landlords shall provide tenants with a specified Illinois Emergency Management Authority pamphlet (rather than the specified pamphlet or an equivalent Authority-approved pamphlet). Makes changes to the language of a required radon disclosure for tenants. Provides that measurements from a radon test performed by a radon contractor are good for a 2-year period unless any renovations, additions, or modifications are made to the building. Adds provisions concerning the withholding of security deposits in the event of a lease termination due to a radon hazard.
