In a telling piece that shows just how serious the government is taking this Chinese drywall issue, President Barack Obama is looking to remove the current chairwoman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission Nancy Nord.
The Herald Tribune reports
President Barack Obama intends to remove the current chairwoman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission — an agency that has been criticized for its slow response to the Chinese drywall and other issues — as lawmakers look for another $2 million in emergency funding aimed at the growing problem.
Obama announced Tuesday that he would nominate Inez Moore Tenenbaum to replace Nancy Nord, a former Eastman Kodak Co. lobbyist who has been criticized for her ties to industry.
Tenenbaum is a former state education commissioner from South Carolina who ran for the Senate in 2004 and who practiced law and worked for the state House.
