Hearing Recap

Earlier this week, I mentioned that the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade would be holding a hearing on a draft version of fixes to the current CPSIA. I appreciated listening to the testimony of all the witnesses and feel confident that the Committee can work in a bipartisan manner to continue this discussion moving forward.

To illustrate some of the important changes this bill would make, I want to draw your attention to a recent article from Bloomberg news entitled “Toymakers Would Get Regulatory Relief Under Republican Plan.” This article helps outline many of the current problems with CPSIA as well as the important fixes that this legislation will address.
