Engler Encourages Swift Action on CPSC Nominations

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 5, 2009 - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President John Engler issued the following statement today welcoming the nomination of Inez Moore Tenenbaum to chair the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Robert S. Adler as a new Commissioner and the Administration's proposed increases to the agency's budget.

The NAM commends President Obama's nominations of Inez Moore Tenenbaum to chair the CPSC and Robert S. Adler as a new Commissioner and welcomes the President's proposals to increase the agency's budget.

Manufacturers encourage swift action on the nominations so the CPSC can sharpen its focus on improving safety and protecting children. The first order of business should be to fix the problems with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). The new law's overly-broad reach is causing unintended harm to consumers and businesses alike and has jeopardized the agency's ability to meet critical safety priorities.

We hope the new chairwoman and her team will move quickly to fix the flaws in the CPSIA and stop the marketplace chaos that threatens the economy and jobs.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation's largest industrial trade association, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAM has 10 additional offices across the country. Visit www.nam.org for more information about manufacturing and the economy.
