Law360, New York (November 7, 2008, 12:00 AM EST) -- President-elect Barack Obama promised to bring change with him when he moves into the White House in January, but change already hit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in August when the Consumer Protection Safety Improvement Act became law. Now the agency and the companies it regulates are scrambling to come to terms with the new law's requirements.
“The change that the Democrats want has already occurred for the CPSC,” said Thomas Barba, a Washington, D.C.-based partner with Steptoe & Johnson LLP.
