INTRODUCED

HB 1420 -- Children's Product Safety Act

Sponsor:  Dougherty

This bill prohibits persons who deal in children's products as
defined in the bill from selling or otherwise placing those
products in the stream of commerce after January 1, 2001, if the
children's products are unsafe because the federal government
has issued a recall or warning or the products do not conform to
federal law.  Violations of this law are class C misdemeanors
and may be enforced by the Attorney General.  The Department of
Public Safety must maintain a list of children's products deemed
unsafe on its Internet site.

The bill also prohibits licensed or registered child care
providers from using any unsafe children's products after July
1, 2001, and requires the departments of Health and Social
Services to notify child care providers of this prohibition and
the provisions of the Children's Product Safety Act.
