CPSIA Update: Confirmation Hearings for CPSC Set Next Wednesday

By July 31, 2009Regulations

The Senate Commerce Committee has announced a hearing for next Wednesday on the nominations of Anne Northup and Robert Adler to serve as commissioners on the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Details here.

That’s quick. (The President has only announced his intention to nominate Northup. Assuming the actual nomination comes today or Monday.)

News coverage on Northup’s nomination:

MSNBC characterized the nomination as another “step by Obama to bring Republicans into the Administration.”  Since it’s a commission seat reserved for a non-Democrat, not really. A clarification followed.
