At a mere 396 pages, this week's new rules increases the total paper released in the last 45 days to at least 1,004 pages. In its usual helpful fashion, the agency issued these rules to replace other documents recently released and that you may have already read. Gotta read these pupies from the top, since they aren't redlined against prior drafts. This doubles the fun of the new rules - you need to master them to run your business PLUS you get to go on an exciting treasure hunt as you try to figure out what has changed! And we get all that fun for free!
Good thing time grows on trees or else I might get frustrated.
Happy reading! Just remember, if you don't comment on these rules and the CPSC imposes final rules that are unreasonable or crush your business, you will have no one to blame but yourself.
As I said, happy reading!
