Crist Asks for Chinese Drywall Investigation

April 3rd, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is asking the Environmental Protection Agency to test thousands of homes in Florida built with Chinese Drywall. The drywall contains high levels of sulfur and has reportedly caused breathing problems for dozens of Floridians. Crist sent a letter to the EPA after Florida Congressman Robert Wexler asked the governor to declare a state of emergency.

Im not considering the state of emergency yet. Im sending a letter today to the Environmental Protection Agency to conduct testing to give us a more determinative result to what the situation is first, said Crist.

Chinese Drywall is most commonly found in homes built between 2004 and 2007. Homes built with the toxic material often have a rotten egg smell to them.
