Summary of the Stay of Enforcement (CPSIA)

The CPSC has issued a federal register notice summary of the stay and what the goals of this stay will allow the Commission to accomplish. Books are not listed in the stay because the Commission has asked for more information and further testing before anything can issued about them. For the complete read, go here.

It makes more sense in a way than most anything else I've read concerning CPSIA but this fight is long from over.

Remember we need to continue to inundate our Congress men and women with calls and letters and tell them to repeal or reform. Vote for Sensator DeMint's proposed reformation of CPSIA, vote to save the econoomy, save the children. Those three Senators that opposed CPSIA in the original votes had good reason to oppose. Yet, no one else spoke up, because it was being done under the guise of "protecting the children". The issuance of this stay does not in any way mean that the public has to be satisfied with what is going on. Representatives in Washington work for the public. Keep calling them, keep sending letters and tell them there is no way to meet the demands of this ill-written, poorly thought out, contradictory, ambiguous law. Join all the causes at CPSIA-central.ning. Make your voices heard and get all your neighbors and friends and families and online acquaintances to join in the fight. This will affect everyone, even people who don't have children because the consumer will be paying outrageous prices for normal every day items in the long run. Teachers, librarians, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, every voting citizen needs to speak up -

T-minus 7 plus 365 days until doomsday -

Thanks for the reminder, Elysabeth. LOL @ the "doomsday" thing though. It's not THAT bad. ;)Hopefully, with this extra time they can rewrite this to make it more realistic.

Rena, I can't be all doom and gloom about the situation. Honestly, I know its a little better but we are still not completely out of the woods yet - so keep on pressing and pushing those lawmakers - thanks for stopping by - E :)
