April Fools Day is Coming

…and so is the rally to inform Congress about the damage being created by the poorly-thought-out provisions of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. More about the CPSIA here, here, and here.

Even if you’re not in the toy business, or a science kit manufacturer, or a children’s clothing maker, or a thrift shop owner, or a homecrafter, you should care about this issue.

April 1, Washington, DC. Please attend if you possibly can.

UPDATE: Apparently there is some proposed legislation which could have a serious negative impact on small farmers and on farmer’s markets. Maybe if enough people get involved soon enough in reviewing this legislation and making their opinions known, we can avoid another CPSIA-level regulatory debacle.
