Heh, heh. Guess who authored the CPSIA? Two of our favorites. Boxer and Waxman.

In any case, RTA. It really lays out the complexity of the situation.

Nord went on to explain how “severely overstretched” the agency staff is as they have not been given the finances they were promised, called the deadlines within the new lead law “impractical for our staff to meet,” and stating (again underlined) that “the scope of products covered by the new regulation and the amount of inventory implicated went well beyond what many have contemplated.”

Ain't that always the case. They just need more funding. Having worked for the govt I know right now that were I to walk into their offices you'll find them all in the break room.
