Proposed bill could help homeowners with faulty material

According to an article from, the Independent Insurance Agents of Virginia favors the appointment of a state panel to address health and safety issues surrounding Chinese drywall after bills that have been stalled called the drywall flawed.

The article says Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade, answered a call by Virginia state legislators to create a task force of their peers and representatives of state government to “form a cohesive, coordinated state response to the federal government during their determination of potential federal action” to aid homeowners.
