New Toy Safety Legislation Signed into Law by President Bush; Toy Industry Assoc Applauds

Legislation aimed at improving U.S. consumer product safety was signed into law by President George W. Bush today.

The legislation dramatically cuts the allowed amount of lead in toys and other children's products, increases funding for the CPSC, and partially bans the controversial plastic-softening chemicals called phthalates.

The Toy Industry Association applauds this action. [article 1] [article 2]
