I'm new to this group. I have been with AARP eight years.
I started with this group because I am an avid scrollsaw artist. My wife and I do several local craft shows a year.
I am wondering if AARP has been on board in fighting to make changes to this law.
As I read the law it effects any who makes handmade products to sell ,not just woodworkers. I have read that there is a tentative exception to nautral materials. I have yet to find it. I have only seen this stated in a responce letter from Senator Arlen Spector.
I can only imagine how many AARP members this law will inpact.
I have voted and signed a petition on this matter.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do thru AARP.
Safe and Happy crafting
We're making progress, but don't stop now!
Today, the Committee on Energy and Commerce sent a letter to its Chairman, Henry Waxman, strongly urging that the beginning date for the CPSIA legislation be delayed until such time as the law can be reviewed and refined.
It is now in the hands of Mr. Waxman to make that decision -- help him make his decision . . . make a phone call to his office and let him know WHY this legislation should be reconsidered as written, making it more specific and protective of the small and home-based American business owner. His office telephone number is 202 225-2927
You may read the letter by clicking on this link to a pdf file. The link is quite long, and came to me broken, so may break up in this transmission as well. If so, just make sure you copy everything from the "http" all the way through "pdf" . . . and paste it into your browser window. I think you'll find the letter very hopeful!!
Let your voices be heard -- when you read the letter, you'll see that it IS our voices that have gotten us this far -- they are listening!
