CPSIA news

Some wonderful news concerning the proposed CPSIA testing. The Commission has voted for a one year suspension of the mandatory lead testing and certification, while they look over the rules. Wow! Their statement even mentions crafters and home based businesses!

I didn't know that they had suspended the start date! YAY! That's also good news for libraries...I was afraid they were going to shut down! I think they had the best of intentions in creating this law, but put no serious thought into the repercussions the law would have.
