This new law will not just affect USED stuff, but new stuff as well. The smaller companies cannot afford to pay for testing and certification, because, well it's too expensive, so they will go under. Therefore, most stores will not carry as much children's stuff as they used to... That means LOTS of wasted product and you have to drive further to get the stuff you used to get at Walmart. This is serious folks. We already have too much crap in landfills, now we will have perfectly good items thrown in there because we cannot sell it, nor give it away... No garage sales... The items you need for your kids are going to be in LARGE demand and harder to get... Do you get it now???

They slid this through when everyone was distracted by the election. I think that was REALLY underhanded and I told my congressmen that I thought so!

Here is the adobe form of the law... many smaller co.'s are already getting ready to close their doors bc of this new law and more hardships on families who can not afford to buy new clothes all the time will be affected when the smaller re-sale stores have to close their doors or stop helping the children within their own community...

Yes people, thank your congress. Just like the EFCA that got a 10:30 PM vote, after many of the opposition had already left. That too was attached to another piece of crap legislation and floated through. Be looking for your local unions and make sure to thank Obama after he signs it (which he has promised to do).
