RADON IND LICENSNG-ADMIN FINES
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Radon Industry Licensing Act. Provides that a person
who sells a device or performs a service without being properly
licensed under this Act shall be required to pay a civil penalty of up
to $5,000 for each offense, in addition to any other penalty provided
by law. Provides that the person must be given an opportunity for a
hearing prior to final action by the Department. Provides that the
civil penalty must be paid within 30 days after the order becomes
final. Effective immediately.
FISCAL NOTE (Department of Nuclear Safety)
The number of unlicensed practice cases that may occur in any
given year is impossible to determine, but a realistic estimate
would be 5 to 10 cases per year. The maximum penalty that the
Department could assess under this bill is $5,000 per viola-
tion. The estimated total amount of penalties assessed in any
single year would be $5,000 to $25,000. The Department's effort
in manpower and other costs will not change significantly from
the current efforts used in dealing with these cases.
