Deutch Passes Drywall Safety Act
Last night, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) successfully passed the first piece of legislation aiming to address the plight of American homeowners suffering from contaminated drywall in their homes since reports of the destructive material began to surface in 2009. The Drywall Wall Safety Act, co-introduced with Rep. Scott Rigell (R-VA), would pressure the Chinese government to submit manufacturers of this tainted drywall to the jurisdiction of the U.S. court system and establish new safeguards to prevent this contaminated material from making its way into the homes of American families. Thousands of homeowners in Florida and thirty-eight other states have been victims of Chinese drywall that corrodes copper piping and wiring in homes, destroys household appliances, and is associated with an array of serious health problems.
