Fort Myers, Fla - Senator Bill Nelson talking new cases of Chinese drywall. The Democrat sitting down with WINK News weeks after we brought you a story about homes built nearly a decade ago testing positive for toxic drywall.
Senator Nelson says he brought up the revelations during a meeting with China's President at last week's nuclear summit in Washington, D.C.
"I said are you aware of this? He said no. I said well, you need to get your people to brief you because there's only one party going to be responsible and that's going to be the Chinese government", he said.
Earlier this month, WINK news brought you the story of a Cape Coral man living in an infected home. John Dearborn says his home was built in 2001.
Senator Nelson says federal health officials have told him Chinese drywall does not pose a health risk.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. trade officials will meet with the Chinese next month. The visit part of on-going talks aimed at getting Beijing to pay millions in damages to U.S. homeowners.
