I was working too quickly yesterday. The CPSC MIGHT kick the can down the road, if they vote to do so on January 31. Nice - you have ten days to adjust to that decision, and until then, I guess you can sweat it out. Perhaps you should pray for relief.
Maybe Congress should make the CPSC hang on for something they want, like their budget. Talk of a 50% budget cut might get the message across to these administrators about the need the plan ahead.
This is your government at work. Remember, in the U.S., the government is by the People. If you don't like this treatment, make yourself heard. Call your Congressman or send them a fax (or ten). This outrage needs to be outed.
