A Win in the Senate!

Today the Senate passed the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Reform Act by a vote of 79-13.  After about three and a half days on the Senate floor, the bill emerged a bit stronger than it was going into the week.  This is a real victory for consumers.  You can read our coalition press release here and my press statement here.

We hope to see more changes at the CPSC than this bill provides, but we'll leave those for another day.  Tonight, we can relax and celebrate a little!
