I just found a FANTASTIC article on the CPSIA which goes into effect February 10th.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, the CPSIA is a new law that will require all products intended for children 12 and under to undergo third party testing for lead and phthalates.  While in theory this may sound good (who wants their kids exposed to harmful things like that?) in reality it is a poorly written law that will put myself and many many others out of business.  

Here's the article I'm talking about.  Very well written and explains the "other side of the coin" very well, in my opinion. -

I've written to my congressmen and senator about this law.  I've received the standard form letters back, which disappoints me.  Will you do the same?
