The Times-Picayune reports that the Chinese drywall meeting has been moved to tomorrow. At this meeting, Louisiana state senators will be available to answer questions regarding the faulty wallboard imported into the US and installed into in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Central to the meeting will be what homeowners can do to better their situation, find out about how to handle their homes if they have the problematic Chinese drywall, and have the state legislators explain the government’s approach to helping with the issue.
State senators Julie Quinn and A.G. Crowe will host a meeting for citizens concerns about Chinese drywall Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Mandeville City Hall.
Some drywall imported from China after Hurricane Katrina is believed to be making people sick and corroding metal fixtures in people’s homes.
Quinn and Crowe will have updates on what the federal and state governments are doing about the problem, and a physician and attorneys will be on hand to answer questions.
Mandeville City Hall is located at 3101 East Causeway Approach in Mandeville. For more information, contact Quinn’s office at 504-219-4640.
The Berniard Law Firm encourages anyone who thinks they may have Chinese drywall in their home to attend this meeting for the wealth of information it is sure to provide. As it shows a priority of the state government to meet with the people and provide information, it is a great step to approaching the matter and finding out what everyone can do to help find a solution in time.
