House Democrats suspect that mold in the House of Representatives is causing headaches and lightheadedness during the work day.

During a hearing of the House Administration Committee, Rep. Charlene Fernandez, D-Yuma, said she has been experiencing the symptoms, though she joked that it might also be due to having to listen to her Republican colleagues.

Rep. Isela Blanc, D-Tempe, said she, too, has been experiencing dizziness and lightheadedness since she started working in the House.

The Department of Administration, which has purview over all state buildings, sent a certified industrial hygienist to the nearly 60-year-old building earlier this month after basement staffers complained about headaches and light-headedness during their work day.
