Letter Re. H.R. 4040, the Consumer Product Safety Modernization Act

Something has gone terribly wrong with our current safety system. H.R. 4040 correctly recognizes that the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) – the agency responsible for protecting consumers from unsafe and dangerous products in the marketplace – is broken. We see this bill – and the managers’ amendment – as taking a critical step in the march to strengthen the CPSC and to improve the agency’s ability to protect the public from risks posed by unsafe products. We look forward to working with you to further improve this legislation as it moves to the full committee.
