Thanks to Senator Klobuchar

Senator Klobuchar has issued a very supportive letter to the CPSC that calls for many of the reforms that we have been calling for. Members of the Handmade Toy Alliance have been working with lawmakers across the country and many have gone on record to argue for changes to the CPSIA to save small businesses, but many others are still replying via form letters. I haven't spoken with any of these other lawmakers, but I feel that Klobuchar's office was really remarkable in their willingness to listen to our concerns and to engage in a process to fix the law's unintended consequences.

A great deal of work remains to be done, but I think all Minnesotans can be proud to have a Senator that listens to her constituents.
