I have a game plan for the interim and am feeling pretty good
Well, my 2.5 blog readers, I do have an interim game plan to keep me going February through August. There are still some details to be worked out, but I think I have a good, workable plan to keep me in business from February, when the CPSIA mandates reasonable testing, through August, when third-party final product testing is required.
And I can’t plan beyond that. I cannot survive past August without changes to the law. I may be able to survive with changes. But it remains to be seen, of course, if there will be changes and what those changes might be.
I have been, by the way, a little disappointed by the attitudes I’ve seen from some retailers about the whole thing. Sort of “yeah, sucks to be you. too bad. not my problem” kind of a thing. Truly, it affects everyone – manufacturers moreso than anyone, of course, but retailers and consumers, as well. We’re all in this together. Let’s all do what we can to get it changed! Write your Congresspeople!!
