Time to support your friends, family and neighbors.
If you know about crumbling foundations and feel the State must step up, like Canada, Ireland and Connecticut did, please consider testifying on January 4th in favor of Senate Bill S548 -An Act Relative to Crumbling Foundations. The text of the bill can be read here: https://malegislature.gov/Bills/192/S548
This will allow for the mechanism to begin homeowner relief, set up seller disclosures (who wants to buy one of these homes unknowingly?), and begin Quarry testing standards so this doesn't continue to happen to new homes being built now.
To testify, email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th. The hearing will be virtual. If you prefer to send in written testimony you can do that too!
Don't want to see abandoned homes in your town?
Don't want to see home buyers get stuck with a home that will need the foundation replaced?
Don't want to see this continue in new builds?
Then take the time to testify on January 4th!

Why Do You Need To Take Action?
Concrete used in homes in contained the mineral pyrrhotite, which degraded foundations. Without repairs costing $150,000 to $250,000, affected homes eventually would be uninhabitable.
Private Insurance companies have denied homeowners’ claims to cover the cost of foundation repairs. In 2019, the Connecticut State Supreme Court ruled that homeowners’ insurance policies can exclude crumbling foundations under the existing definition of “collapse.”
