The Toy Industry Association Responds to Washington State Law Governing the Sale of Toys and the Governor's Veto of Key Sections of the Bill
Date:4/1/2008

NEW YORK, April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/-- The Toy Industry Association released the following statement today regarding the new Washington State law governing the sale of toys.

We are encouraged that the Governor vetoed two key parts of the bill and issued strong cautions about the remaining sections, as state legislators ignored complex issues in their rush to pass the law. As she indicated in her signing statement, the Governor is committed to fixing these issues in the rulemaking process and will work with legislators and regulators to address these unresolved issues.

We anticipate that other states will take a more deliberate approach and fully consider the impact of pending legislation related to toys before passing laws.

The toy industry is deeply committed to the health and safety of children. We have long supported tough national and international safety standards covering every aspect of toy manufacturing and our toys comply with these standards.

TIA supports federal legislative efforts to strengthen toy safety laws and believes the comprehensive, unified set of regulations is the best approach to ensure the safety of our nation's children.
