Florida Senator Bill Nelson recently sent a letter to President Obama asking the administration to streamline federal assistance available to homeowners with allegedly tainted Chinese drywall. Nelson requested “White House mobilization and coordination of all federal resources that could help homeowners” and stressed the need for an inter-agency Drywall Task Force to coordinate efforts and a “one-stop federal Drywall Assistance Center” that could provide information and resources directly to impacted homeowners.

Senator Nelson also joined with Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Jim Webb in a letter to the Small Business Administration and with Senators Landrieu and Webb in a letter to the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of the Treasury, asking those agencies to review existing programs and identify any that would assist homeowners impacted by the tainted Chinese drywall.
