Senator Seeks Chinese Drywall Standards

April 17th, 2009 by flanews

There may soon be a plan to repair thousand of Florida homes with toxic
materials. Some drywall imported from China to build homes between 2004 and
2007 contain dangerous levels of sulfur. People living in the effected
homes report problems breathing and an egg oder throughout their homes.
State Senator Dave Aronberg is calling on the state to adopt a plan to
repair the homes.

Consumers will only be protected if we all come together to solve this
problem using real science, using real experts and using representatives of
consumer groups to actually fix this problem and not leave it to a pack of
inconsistent rules and regulations depending on where you live in the
state, said Aronberg.

Aronberg says if the state doesnt adopt standards, local governments will
and the plans could differ from city to city.
