HR 4040 - Proof that it's Stupid

Some of you may remember my rant on HR 4040, the Consumer Product Safety "Improvement" Act, which would impose such absurd testing requirements on all children's products that hundreds of thousands of businesses would be forced to close.

In belated recognition that the whole idea is STUPID, the gommit exempted thrift and consignment stores. Now it looks like they're giving a year's reprieve for manufacturers and importers of children's products. While this does NOT mean businesses are off the hook, at least it gives a year's breathing room to figure out how to overthrow this STUPID law.

Don't let up the pressure, folks. Follow the suggestions at the end of my column and rattle a few cages.
