Times Editorial Calls for New CPSC Leadership

In an editorial, the New York Times asks, "Is That Fabulous New Toy Safe?" and says the Bush administration "did not make the safety of toys and other products a priority," but "the Obama administration now has an opportunity to fill that regulatory gap by appointing new leadership for the Consumer Product Safety Commission." Obama "must quickly replace the commission's acting chairwoman, Nancy Nord, who opposed adding new resources and authority to her agency," and "choose the kind of enlightened leadership that every parent and toy lover needs and that will give consumer safety the priority it deserves."
