House of Representatives Passes Consumer Product Safety Modernization Act by a 407-0 Vote

On Wednesday the House of Representatives approved H.R. 4040, the Consumer Product Safety Modernization Act, by a 407-0 vote.  The bill represents a comprehensive approach to improving consumer safety and provides for the first reauthorization of the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 15 years. The bill would eliminate lead from children's products, increase CPSC funding, and require toy testing by independent labs, the Senate adjourned without taking up the House bill or a Senate committee version passed in October.  See the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post articles for a more detailed analysis.
