As part of many new Illinois laws, radon testing is now required in daycare centers.
It's only required once every three years and the cost of the test depends on the size of the day care center.
"there are some good things about it," P & J Tender Care administrative director Debbie Case. "we are going to have that done and people will feel more secure knowing that it's not a health risk that we have in our centers."
This can be expensive for a state-funded daycare center that works on a tight budget. However, an official at P & J Tender Care said she cares more about the safety of the children.
In-home license daycares are allowed to use the store bought home test. Daycare centers have the whole year of 2013 to comply with the new law.
