Having been poisoned by Domestic, American made Drywall, we as disabled and sickened Americans support the fact that it should be banned, disposed of and marked as hazmat material....what we do not agree with is giving the CPSC more flexibility to exclude Companies . They are already doing that. American Companies like United States Gypsum, National Gypsum, Georgia Pacific.,etc..The Domestic drywall has some of the same Poisonous Chemicals such as Carbonyl Sulfide, Carbon Disulfie, etc...We would only hope that all of the known Domestic Drywall be deemed hazardous as well, if not, all of this drywall will continue to be recycled into the Construction Stream. Drop Drywall is being recycled and if Domestic as well as the brand on the bill is not included, more Americans will be sickened. This bill should be all encompassing. To date,I, we cannot dispose of our drywall unless at a hazmat facility, it is Domestic...that in itself should tell the American folks something.
