The Louisiana Senate has passed a measure that would ban against property insurers dropping or changing coverage for homes or businesses that contain Chinese-made drywall, which has been blamed for home corrosion and health concerns. The bill by Sen. Julie Quinn, R-Metairie, would prohibit property insurers from canceling, refusing to renew, or increasing premiums or deductibles because of Chinese drywall at a property.
