Officials in Parkland want to investigate reports of problems stemming from Chinese drywall used in post-2003 housing. Resident of at least six homes complained that the building material is seeping sulfuric acid and triggered asthma attacks. State and federal regulators have investigated in the city and other locations, but Parkland Commissioner Jared Moskowitz wants to take faster action and has sent city testers out to address a situation he says is becoming unlivable.
