This coming Monday will be a meaningful day for federal regulatory reform. According to the respected publication The Hill, Monday’s edition of the Federal Register will contain numerous new rules that will hopefully impact Americans for the better. Specifically, they will help to ensure that young children and motor vehicle travelers will be able to be safer than they were before.
First, the Consumer Product Safety Commission is formally announcing its new safety requirements for frame-based child carriers on Monday. Frame-based child carriers are often used by hikers and by parents attending events where they will need to stand with their children for lengthy periods of time. Unlike frameless slings, frame-based carriers are used to carry babies and young children in a backpack-like structure where children are allowed to sit upright on their own.
