CPSIA Update: Public Citizen Hails Victory

By February 11, 2009Economy, Regulations

A news release from Public Citizen, advocates of the full-bore implementation of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.

Their headline: “Attack on New Product Safety Law Fails; Lawmakers Should Block Future Attempts to Weaken Measure

Our version: “Attack on Small Business, Thrift Stores, Children’s Books and Economic Activity Succeeds; Lawmakers Should Block Future Attempts to Change Jobs-Killing Law.”

Sub-hed: “No More Dirt Bikes for Kids — Good! Why Should They Have Any Fun?”

UPDATE (1:30 p.m.): Thrift stores clear their shelves.


Hat tip, Walter Olson at Overlawyered, “Thrift stores, the day after,” which recounts similar reaction all across the country.

We anxiously await the news release, “Public Citizen hails removal of children’s coats from cold-weather thrift stores.”

UPDATE Fixed the real/fake headlines. Bad editing.
