CPSIA Update: The Hearing was Just ‘Postponed,’ Wasn’t It?

By February 27, 2009Regulations

Below we note the possibility of a House Small Business Committee hearing into the effects of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, a hearing tentatively scheduled and then unscheduled. Which reminds us of this item we pulled from the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s website on December 8, 2008 (since deleted):

*THE FOLLOWING HEARING HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO A DATE TO BE DETERMINED*
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2008
Implementation of the CPSIA: Urgent Questions about Application Dates,
Testing and Certification, and Protecting Children
This is an oversight hearing examining implementation of Public Law 110-314
(H.R. 4040, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)).
Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection Hearing
10:00 a.m. in room 2123 Rayburn House Office Building

Postponed until a date to be determined.

Well, when is that date?

UPDATE (8:30 p.m. Saturday): A reader asks how one knows if a committee (such as the House Small Business Committee) has scheduled a hearing, postponed it, or nothing is one the agenda. Answer: Check the Congressional Record’s Daily Digest on Fridays, when it carries a list of the upcoming week’s hearing. According to the latest Daily Digest, no hearing is pending.

Otherwise, if a hearing does get put on the schedule, we’ll make sure to note it here at the blog. But you shouldn’t anticipate one.
