CPSIA - Imagine the Fun, the Commission to Discuss the "15 Month Rule" Tomorrow

The CPSC Commission will be discussing the following matters tomorrow at 9 AM EST:
  1. Testing and Labeling to Product Certification - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) and Testing Component Parts - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR)
  2. CPSA 15(j) Rule for Drawstrings - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR)
  3. CPSA 15(j) Rule for Hairdryers - Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR)
  4. Infant Bath Seats - Final Rule - and Laboratory Accreditation

Please NOTE that the Testing and Labeling rules (the "15 Month Rule" announced on April 1) has been converted into a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to expedite its completion. Other than their desire to move on to something more interesting to do, why do you suppose the Commission is so hot-to-trot to get this rulemaking behind them?

Could it be that they REALLY want to lift the testing stay on February 10, 2011, as PROMISED? Hmmm.

You can view the hearing tomorrow at this link.
