Government is such an intrusive force in our lives...as Reagan said, "Government is not the solution to our problems. Government IS the problem." That is never more true than these days we live in.
And if affects parts of our lives I never would have imagined...the CPSIA is the insane anti-lead / chemical law that, as usual, was passed with good intentions but has horrible ramifications.
If you aren't yet aware of this law and how it impacts small businesses, including stay at home mom's making children's clothes, consignment shops, even libraries and used book stores, you should really do even just a small amount of research. It doesn't take long to see what a horrible law this is.
There has been a stay on the required testing portion of the law, but there are some in government trying to end it and push forward to implement this ill designed law.
To read about some of the consequences of discontinuing the stay, head over to this blog posting by someone who has been keeping up to date on this issue.
We may be small individuals in comparison to large corporations, but if we come together we can make a difference!
