CPSIA was imposed to decrease the amounts of lead and phalates in toys for children under 12. I have been keeping a eye on what has been happening. It would have impacted anyone that manufactures/makes toys or anything for children under 12. So would have put an undue burden on any small or homebased business. Hopefully this will allow them to stay working.

I'm sure I don't completly understand this law, if you have questions about it please visit www.handmade.org

Hopefully it passes and they can get an exemption for small businesses made permanent!
