Today, the Commission voted on a final rule to stop window coverings from strangling children to death. All four Commissioners came together on a bipartisan amendment to put this rule in force more quickly to save more children’s lives. While industry asked for more time, they failed to demonstrate the need for it. This is a problem that industry has known about since at least 1983 and refused to fix on its own. We are not about to give them more time. The additional months of profits industry seeks for selling dangerous products are not worth the cost of children’s lives. CPSC will continue to create and enforce vital safety regulations as quickly as possible.
