Murphy brought up the problem during a hearing in Washington on Wednesday.
“I wanted to get your commitment to have a further conversation about it, to hear some of my ideas and how HUD could be helpful, and to see if there are ways that we can work together,” Murphy said.
“That problem was actually recently brought to my attention by the staff who’ve already started focusing attention on that. It’s a very valid issue and yes, we would be very happy to work with you on that,” Carson said.
Murphy invited Carson to Connecticut to hear from affected homeowners, and to see the damage in person.
On the state level, Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz says they’re prepared to move forward on a $10 surcharge on insurance policies to help people with crumbling foundations.
