Just received a copy of this letter from BreeAnne from Tiny Revolutionary and it is great to hear that we are being considered.


Also received this email from Congressman Earl Blumenauer today:
Dear Mrs. Frost,

Thank you for your letter regarding the Consumer Products Safety Commission and the recently enacted Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. I am a strong supporter of that law, which ensures that children's products do not contain dangerous amounts of lead.

Under the Act, all products aimed at children 12 and under must be tested for lead and phthalates, beginning February 10th. Recognizing that this testing may place a heavy burden on smaller retailers, I'm very pleased that the Commission is taking a critical look at the manner these requirements will be implemented. I am also pleased that Congress will be reviewing these requirements early this year to ensure they are implemented as efficiently and fairly as possible.

Again, thank you for expressing your concerns and I look forward to the implementation of a law that protects children and preserves economic opportunity.

Earl Blumenauer
Member of Congress
