CPSIA and Product Safety News Roundup
The big news this week was the passage of H.R. 2715 on Monday by both houses of Congress. The bill, which allows the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to exercise more discretion regarding the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), is a common-sense amendment to a law that's been a thorn in the side of business for years. Passed by an overwhelming majority in the House and voice vote in the Senate, there's no reason to think President Obama won't sign it when it comes to his desk.
