BATON ROUGE, LA — Approximately 100 victims of Chinese drywall in Louisiana will soon see some relief as plans are finalized to start home repairs under a pilot remediation program, according to WVUE-TV.

The program, being tested across the Gulf Coast, will affect 109 homeowners primarily in the parishes of St. Tammany, Ascension, East Baton Rouge and Orleans, the article noted.

"It is important that the diminished value of these homes be restored to their original fair market value," said Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.

"This is a direct benefit not only to the homeowners, but also to the entire communities where the homes are located, as well as the State of Louisiana," Caldwell added.

According to the article, the program is expected to remediate about 300 homes in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida.

Homeowners will not have to pay any out of pocket expenses to participate, the article stated.
