Chinese drywall cases – The Virginia Legislatures response

Comments Off

The Hampton Roads Virginian-Pilot reported that a House committee rejected a measure which "would have ensured that home-owners could file claims with their home insurance companies for property damage caused by Chinese-made drywall," and one which "would have prevented home insurers from canceling policies or raising rates on properties because they were built with the drywall." While lawmakers "agreed owners of homes built with Chinese drywall deserve relief, they weren’t sure that going through insurance companies was the best way for them to go about getting it." Doug Landau has written about holding foreign product makers accountable for defective, tainted and dangerous products.
