Latest from Publisher's Weekly concerning the CPSIA

If you all don't think this new soon to be law doesn't concern you, please think again. The latest article from Publisher's Weekly shows that this new law will affect more than just books being sold in bookstores; it goes down to the libraries and schools. I urge you all to send your letters to the appropriate people (again, a good listing of contacts and other information can be found on both Vivian's blog and Holly's blog.) Holly has been putting up the good fight but we are a small company and it will take thousands of voices to be heard.

On the good news side of this, Change.org had some topics that were posted and encouraged the population to vote on to present to President-elect Barack to help make changes in such things as this silly, ill-written, poorly thought out, double edged, contradictory and ambiguous law. The top 10 vote getters will be presented, and "Save the Small Businesses from CPSIA" ranked in the top 10. So now it is a matter of getting a platform on how to make this a national problem to present to the President-elect in order to get it changed. So please keep writing and calling and emailing your congressmen, the chairs of the committees and even President-elect and President-soon-to-be. The more voices that speak out against this new law, the better we are. February 10 will be here before we know it (25 days and counting). Speak up to save the books, clothing, and toy industry from the monstrous law that will kill the economy totally.

I just got the results from the change.org site about who made the top 10. Dang, that was close! And it's MIND BLOWING to see what the American people think is important. With big companies laying off so many people right now, what do they think is going to happen when small businesses have to close their doors???

At least CPSIA made the list ...
