Statement of Administration Policy: H.R. 3456 - Consumer Product Safety Amendments of 1985

January 27, 1986

STATEMENT OF ADMINISTRATION POLICY

(House Rules)
(Waxman (D) California and 4 others)

The Administration opposes enactment of H.R. 3456, because it:

— provides an unwarranted expansion in the regulatory authority of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to include permanently-fixed amusement rides and devices. Title IV of the bill duplicates already existing State and private regulatory programs, and would not result in a decrease in the risk of accident or injury associated with amusement devices;

— exceeds the President's Budget by $10.3 million over the fiscal year 1986-88 period; and

— establishes 'a personnel floor of 568 officers and employees for the CPSC.
