Thanks to the incredible grassroots movement against the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, which would have gone into effect on February 10, 2009, the commission that created the law has voted to stay the legislation for one year.

These businesses will not need to issue certificates based on testing of their products until additional decisions are issued by the Commission.”

It’s certainly not a done deal, but it’s a step in the right direction.
