The Goodwill I visited previously that was tearing all the pre-85 books off the shelf two weeks ago has thankfully gone slack and I found a few new vintage books on my last visit. I really can't imagine how the government is going to enforce these crazy laws but one reader was nice enough to send me some info about what's happening with the bill to amend now.
There may be help.
There are bills in committee in Congress to amend this ridiculous law.
PLEASE GO TO THIS WEBSITE ASAP.
The related bills are listed below.
When you get to the website, click on each law as shown below and contact the officials listed and tell them to move these bills forward.
H.R. 968: To amend the Consumer Product Safety Act to provide regulatory relief to small and...
H.R. 1046: To ensure the effective implementation of children's product safety standards under...
H.R. 1027: To exempt second-hand sellers of certain products from the lead content
These bills are in committee and must be moved forward NOW.
Now, all of you Xers who watched School House Rock growing up KNOW that most bills never get out of committee, so the more noise we make, the more likely something is to give. SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE e-mail these guys and stop the madness!
