Flu? Illegal to sell hand made baby booties?

I know it has been a while since I posted…life got a bit busy, then of all christmas2008things, DH came down with something like the flu… now I have it.   And have had it for 4 days or so…  I promise more posts soon, but will have to feel a bit like I may live before I get up the impetus to be able to think and type at the same time..lol

In the meantime…check out this article from the Tulsa, OK newspaper…  I hate to think that it will be illegal to sell our hand made baby booties in our Etsy shops or online stores….

    Pat Leahy, who I’ve never really liked before, has expressed support for some changes to the bill — like they’ve made for the food safety stuff (you don’t have to undergo all the testing to set up a booth with your cookies and homegrown lemons at a farmer’s market, for example). Things like exemptions with random testing for small businesses (as they have with the food stuff), or perhaps testing the materials (which are not unique) rather than the one-of-a-kind finished products (which is what they do in Europe). Or perhaps acknowledging that organic cotton and unfinished pine don’t tend to have lead in them, and might not need testing at all!

    I know when I have kids I’ll be able to get my German sister to send me toys, but not everyone has that option, so I sure hope they’ll fix this!
