Blog Stroll # 2: Senate Says No More Negative Nancy
On PIRG blog and summarized on CL&P blog, Senate is a little fed up with all of this Corporate Protector Stool-pigeoning Crap (sorry, I couldn't resist). It's ready to reform the Consumer Product Safety Commission into an agency that actually protects the public rather than manufacturers and other businesses. Cool.
Senate also wants Nancy Nord, Chair of the CPSC (pictured), to resign. This demand has been bolstered by recent news coverage about Nord's letter opposing the reform bill that would drastically increase the Commission's budget and give it greater authority to regulate products and protect people against dangerous ones.
