Cao to Host Town Hall on Chinese Drywall
Washington, DC - Congressman Anh “Joseph” Cao (LA-2) will conduct a public town hall and briefing about Chinese drywall for Louisiana residents whose homes were rebuilt with this tainted material.
The event will be held on Monday, December 14, 2009 from 9:00am - 11:00am CST at The University of New Orleans (UNO), Homer L. Hitt Alumni Center.
Cao will lead a panel of government safety officials including representatives from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Louisiana Recovery Authority (LRA) and state elected officials to provide updates on the work each is doing to combat Chinese drywall.
Orleans and Jefferson Parish residents should attend this town hall to:
• Receive a briefing on the federal and state initiatives to help victims.
• Learn how to remove tainted drywall from their home.
• Register Chinese drywall complaints.
Cao said: “A large number of Chinese drywall cases have been reported in the 2nd Congressional district, and my constituents deserve answers to their questions about the damage to their homes and their health concerns.”
Cao is a member of the Congressional Contaminated Drywall Caucus. The Caucus is leading the Congressional investigation into Chinese drywall, and examining solutions to help affected families across the country.
