CPSC bill already works its magic



And it's not even passed yet! A news release distributed this afternoon:

WASHINGTON, Jul 30, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Responding to a landmark product safety bill that is expected to pass Congress this week and will substantially impact the way that retailers, importers and manufacturers do business, Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. announced it has formed a dedicated Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Practice Group. The group, headed by product safety legal expert Chuck Samuels, is comprised of nearly a dozen practitioners across the firm's Washington D.C., New York, Boston and California offices. The group includes experts in product liability litigation, insurance litigation and federal regulatory issues.

Quick work, eh? (Humor aside, I should note that my colleagues at the National Association of Manufacturers have only good things to say about Chuck, who represented the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers in working on H.R. 4040, the CPSC bill.)

Speaker Pelosi is now wrapping up House debate.
