I wanted to share what could possibly be the end to the madness of the CPSIA mess. (oh, I am such a dreamer!)
After calling the office of every Representative who seemed to have any connection to this legislation (most of them acting like they had little idea what I was talking about), I just had the first ENCOURAGING conversation with an aide from my state Senator, Rep Sam Brownback. She was very knowledgeable and immediately told me that Rep Brownback is taking this very seriously and is treating it as a high priority. She said that in addition to "asking the CPSIA to clarify..." (as stated in a recent article in the Wichita Eagle) he is (these were her words) "as we speak, he is writing legislation that will define the parameters of the law" and that he understands the importance of Congress and the Senate to define the law and only allow CPSIA to enforce it. This could be great news, and I told her I would tell you.
Time will tell... is Sam Brownback my new hero? If so, I will drive to Wichita and give him a hug. (that's not a threat)
