BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Boynton Beach homeowners, stuck with tainted Chinese drywall, could get some help this week.

Congressman Robert Wexler of Boca Raton will tour several area homes Tuesday. He will then hold a news conference on Wednesday to talk about what he saw.

Wexler is urging Governor Crist to declare a state of emergency in Florida over the tainted Chinese drywall. He wants federal money for homeowners who need to fix their houses.

The drywall corrodes pipes and could cause health problems.
