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.                
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
          Adds reference to:

          420 ILCS 40/49 new                                                   
        Amends the Radiation Protection Act of 1990.  Adds cost-effective      
   remediation that is protective to the public  health  for  the  Ottawa      
   radiation  sites  to  the  list  of  purposes  of the Act.  Grants the      
   Department specific powers to be used for the  remediation  of  Ottawa      
   radiation sites.
