CPSIA Update: The Reality

By July 13, 2009Regulations

Sarah Natividad, owner of Curious Workmanship, a home-based microbusiness in Tooele, Utah, uses Twitter to report her decision to shut down her operations, a business decision forced upon her by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act:

We quoted Sarah in the Washington Times op-ed a few weeks ago, and she has commented recently on CPSIA-related posts at Shopfloor.org. Sorry to see it come to this.

Bet she’s make a good witness at a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on the CPSIA.

  • Thanks for posting about my bittersweet decision! I doubt I’d make a good witness though; if my van with 400,000 miles on it ever made it to DC, I’d have to testify with my autistic 5 year old sitting on my lap licking his hands. And that’s precisely why Congress hasn’t listened to our voices– it’s the ones who can’t make it to DC who are being ignored. Thanks to NAM for making it to DC on our behalf!
