Senate Committee Approves Improved Safety Standards

Also from the NYT, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation has approved a bill that would expand the authority of the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

The bill would increase the maximum penalties for safety violations and make it easier for the government to make public reports of faulty products, protect industry whistle-blowers and prosecute executives of companies that willfully violate safety laws. It would ban lead in toys and give state prosecutors the authority to enforce federal consumer safety rules.
