Hundreds Attend Louisiana Chinese Drywall Meeting

An overflow crowd packed a a Chinese drywall town hall meeting in Mandeville, Louisiana last night. The town hall was hosted by state Sens. Julie Quinn, R-Metairie, and A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell.

Louisiana is among the states hardest hit by the Chinese drywall crisis. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), 184 homeowners there have filed complaints with the agency. However, it is likely that thousands of homes in the state contain the defective material. Many of the Chinese drywall homes in Louisiana were among those rebuilt following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina.

At last night’s meeting, Sen. Quinn urged attendees to report their Chinese drywall problems to the state’s attorney general, who is trying to ascertain how many homes in Louisiana might be affected.  An attorney at the meeting also urged homeowners to make complaints with the CPSC.

According to the Times-Picayune, St. Tammany Parish Assessor Patricia Schwarz Core also promised homeowners help.  She said her office would reduce assessments for homes with Chinese drywall, providing homeowners submit a reevaluation form and proof that their residence contains the material.  Proof could include photos or a note from a contract, the Times-Picayune said.

The Times-Picayune said the event attracted people from as far away as Baton Rouge.  The  crowd – estimated at around 500 – was too large for the Mandeville City Hall, so Sen. Quinn held a second meeting right after the first in an attempt to accommodate all who wanted to attend, the Times-Picayune said.  Sen. Quinn promised to hold other Chinese drywall meetings in the future.
