WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEW LAW ABOUT LEAD TESTING ALL CHILDREN/BABY ITEMS UNDER 12 YRS. OLD?

THAT MEANS NO MORE YARD SALE, NO GARAGE SALE, NO CRAIGSLIST, NO EBAY, AND THRIFT STORE SALES!
wouldnt make a profit if you pay for the testing!!
I just washed down my son's swing and exersaucer so i could sell them on craigslist. Geez so much for that!!
the law starts feb 10th.

  • I believe that they are restructuring that law so that it will only require products made after Feb 10th to be tested. I had contacted my congressman and that is what he said.
    I do not have a direct link, but he did say that it would not affect yard sales, thrift shops etc.
    Hopefully he is correct, I will work on finding info to back up that claim.
