Finally, this matter is getting attention in the mainstream media, with a great article by good guy Jeff Stier in the New York Post. His article was linked to by the Consumer Reports blog, as an example of an "anti-CPSIA" story.
CR's take is that the law doesn't need to be rolled back but the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) does need to step in. However, there is very little the agency can do on the enforcement side--and I have a feeling that the CR staffers know this. If they don't, they are even more clueless than I thought.
By all logic, there is no explanation as to why "consumer" groups should be in favor of this law, since it will drastically hurt consumers. Here's the explanation: They are NOT really consumer groups at all. Rather, they are anti-industry zealots, who are using lead in toys--and any other issue--as a way to hurt industry. Throwing it back at CPSC--which was against this law, and told Congress, who would not listen--is completely disingenuous.
