The Louisiana Legislature has adopted House Concurrent Resolution No. 185, authored by Representative Tim Burns. The resolution urges and requests that the Department of Health and Hospitals and the Deptartment of Insurance, in consultation with the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors, investigate the health risks associated with living in homes that contain drywall imported from China, study the potential homeowners insurance coverage issues, including triggers, endorsements, and exclusions to policies that are related to drywall imported from China, and determine whether such material should be identified as a substandard, unsafe building material. The resolution goes on to request a report of the findings and recommendations of this study to the legislature prior to the convening of the 2010 regular session.
