A bill to fund a state program that's been credited with reducing teen pregnancies and abortions in Colorado was introduced to the House Friday.
The measure would allocate $5 million from this year’s state budget to pay for the Colorado Family Planning Initiative. It’s a program that helps low-income women access birth control at certain health clinics.
The initiative launched in 2009 with a $23 million donation, but those funds are drying up.
Health officials say the best way to protect yourself from radon is by testing your home. And, winter is the perfect time to do it because when you test you need to keep all of your doors and windows closed.
Radon is an odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in our environment. Long-term exposure to radon can cause lung cancer. That's why Colorado and the Environmental Protection Agency have declared January a call to action month for radon testing.
KVNF’s Laura Palmisano attended a radon seminar in Delta to find out more about the potentially harmful gas.
