Congress Takes Action to Protect Children 

According to a report on Consumer Reports, every two weeks a television or piece of furniture tips over and tragically kills a small child in the United States. The risks of life-threatening TV and furniture tip-over accidents have been known for more than a decade, yet no there are no new regulations passed to make sure manufacturers ensure their furniture is stable. Fortunately, Congress is beginning to take some action to protect children from these horrific and preventable accidents. 

The STURDY Act is a new Bill that would mandate new stability standards for certain types of furniture and dressers. So far, the Bill has passed both the House of Representatives and the Senate Commerce Committee. This new Bill also has strong bipartisan support. According to the news report, the U.S. Senate now has to pass this life-saving Bill. If we all speak out, we can pressure Congress to take action to save children's lives. 

S. 3232 (the Sturdy Act) requires the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to scrutinize voluntary safety measures for clothing storage units and administer a safety standard to protect small children from tip-over-related injury or death. S. 3232 also imposes a private-sector order as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA). This would require manufacturers of clothing storage units to perform stability and safety tests in adherence to all safety standards that CPSC will issue. 

Right now, stability and safety tests are conducted under a current and voluntary standard. This Bill mandates the CPSC to adopt the voluntary standard should it meet the requirements specified under the Bill. Since pending modifications to the voluntary standard could satisfy that condition, it is expected that most manufacturers will comply voluntarily to the new standard.
