Radon resistant construction proposal bracketed

Lawmakers gave unanimous consent Feb. 3 to bracket a bill that would require all new homes in Nebraska to include radon resistant construction.

As amended on general file, LB13 would have applied to all new residential construction beginning Jan. 1, 2016.

Omaha Sen. Bob Krist, sponsor of LB13, asked lawmakers to bracket the bill until April 10, 2014, saying lobby groups involved in the issue were unable to reach consensus regarding unresolved issues with the bill.

No objection was offered to the motion and the bill was bracketed.
