Comment on the Consumer Product Safety Commission
The PopTort Blog has published an interesting comment called Debunking A Major CPSIA Myth in which it argues that the notion (or claim) that Congress must change or scrap the Consumer Product Safety Act because it has rendered the CPSC powerless to issue exemptions to small enterprises is false. The comments concludes like this (links are in the original): "So listen up, small enterprise folks. The CPSC had three different opportunities to come to your aide and it turned its back on you every time. This agency is not powerless to give you exemptions and it says so itself. It just chooses not to. In the final analysis, there is no need for Congress to change this law. What we need is a change in the CPSC leadership."
