Critical Product Safety Legislation Introduced in House by Representative Rush
Today, Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) introduced a critically important product safety bill, the “Safety Hazard and Recall Efficiency (SHARE) Information Act.” The bill would amend Section 6(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) to remove obstacles that prevent the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) from communicating vital health and safety information to the public. The bill also would increase civil penalties for entities that do not comply with transparency rules or continue to sell unsafe consumer products. Consumer advocacy organizations have been working together for decades to improve product safety and Section 6(b), and applaud Rep. Rush for introducing the SHARE Information Act.
