...Chairmen Henry A. Waxman and Bobby L. Rush, two who sponsored the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and handed it to the Consumer Product Safety Commission to enforce, have written a letter to said CPSC calling for changes to the CPSIA. What?
"House and Senate Leaders Urge Action on Consumer Produce Safety Concerns -
Chairmen Henry A. Waxman and Bobby L. Rush, together with Senator John D. Rockefeller, incoming chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, and Senator Mark L. Pryor, sent a letter to the Consumer Product Safety Commission expressing concerns about implementation of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. The letter highlighted four issues of particular concern and urged the Commission to take swift action to address critical issues of implementation." http://energycommerce.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1474&Itemid=1

On a better note, in my opinion probably the best article written to date on the CPSIA from Walter Olson, Forbes.com - "Scrap The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act" Self-congratulation makes for bad law.
