STURDY ACT - BILL H.R.1314/S.3232
PAT parents describe how the STURDY Act could have saved their children's lives,
and hundreds of others.
The STURDY Act would require the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to create a mandatory safety standard for all dressers and clothing storage units manufactured or sold in the U.S. Currently, there is no mandatory standard, and the existing voluntary standard is insufficient.
Contact your Senators and Representative today, and ask them to cosponsor this life-saving bill.
JAN SCHAKOWSKY & STURDY ACT
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky introduced the Stop Tip-Overs of Unstable, Risky Dressers on Youth Act of 2021. Tipping furniture presents a serious risk of injury and death to children. Current voluntary furniture stability standards are inadequate, and unstable furniture continues to be a top hidden household hazard.
