Open Letter to Artisans and Authors Regarding CPSIA

My cousin Jill, who has been working on making changes to the Consumer Protection and Safety Act (CPSIA) that will be less onerous to small businesses that make toys and children's products, points me to this open letter to artisans and authors by a local writer named Holly Jahangiri. That post points to this Publishers Weekly article, which notes the effect the CPSIA has had so far on the publishers of children's books, which are also in scope for this law. There's a lot of confusion and a high potential for unintended consequences here, so again I urge you to check out the Handmade Toy Alliance and make your voice heard. Time is running out.
