Senator Nanny Pushes Toy Reform

Senator pushes toy reform, tests find more lead; By Karey Wutkowski; Reuters; 5 December 2007.

A Senate leader said on Wednesday the U.S. agency in charge of toy safety needed to take immediate steps to restore consumer confidence, including improving recall information and ending industry-paid travel.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, chairman of the subcommittee that oversees funding for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, also voiced hoped the Senate could approve a toy safety bill before the end of the year.

"We know the consumer safety system in America is broken," said Durbin of Illinois, also assistant Senate majority leader.
