United States Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) reports that, this week, Chinese president Hu Jintao told him this week that he would investigate problems with Chinese manufactured drywall.
“If we can get the top government official of China working on this, then that's where we're going to get the money to make these homeowners whole,” Nelson said in a news release from his office Wednesday, April 14, 2010. Nelson revealed that he had spoken with Hu about the problems on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 during a break in a nuclear security summit in Washington, D.C. Through a translator, Hu told Nelson he would “look into it.”
