The rules for radon-resistant commercial building standards shall be submitted by the department to the Legislature prior to becoming effective.
(3) Local jurisdictions may enact ordinances for radon-resistant building construction only pursuant to this subsection. A county governing authority and the governing bodies of the municipalities representing at least a majority of the county’s municipal population shall enter into an interlocal agreement to adopt by ordinance the department’s radon-resistant passive construction standards as a code for residential radon-resistant building construction. The standards shall apply uniformly to the entire jurisdictions that adopt the standards.
