CPSC Choice Provokes Controversy (washingtonpost.com) In a letter sent to Congress yesterday, Consumers Union, the Children’s Defense Fund and the U.S. Public Interest Research Group said that under Gall’s leadership, the CPSC will “abdicate its responsibility to protect children.”

Noting that Gall (R) was the lone vote against a new safety standard for baby walkers, bunk beds and crib slats, the letter said, “Gall has repeatedly refused to act when faced with evidence of deaths and injuries to children from dangerous products, often blaming the parents, not the products.” Gall also initially voted against regulating baby bath seats but reversed her position after being nominated.


Why am I not surprised? When will this nonsense end? 2004!!!
