Congressman Ed Markey will not present his fixed-site amusement ride amendment to the CPSC bill today, after all. Mark-up on the bill—which reforms and funds the CPSC—was postponed due to unrelated, and potentially heated debate of the Energy bill on the House floor today.
The mark-up will most likely be rescheduled for sometime next week, and we'll update you here as soon as we know when.
In the meantime, please continue to contact Energy and Commerce Committee members and share your opposition to Markey's amendment on behalf of the amusement industry. Your comments really do make an impact.
Also, as he mentioned in his comment on my last post, Faulkner University professor Chad Emerson has posted over at his Theme Law blog a spreadsheet detailing each state's amusement safety law.
