Consumer Groups Urge Congress to Increase Funding for CPSC and Remove ROV Provision

The Consumer Federation of America joined other consumer organizations in urging the Senate Appropriations Committee to provide more funding for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC had previously requested $170 million in FY 2022. These organizations urged the Senate Appropriations Committee to increase that to at least $281 million alongside an additional one-time allocation. The organizations also urged the removal of the provision prohibiting the CPSC from using their allocated funds to finalize, implement, or enforce a proposed 2014 rule on ROVs until a study is completed by the National Academy of Sciences.
