KID Applauds U.S. Senate Confirmation of Richard Trumka Jr. for Commissioner of U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

Statement of KID Executive Director Nancy Cowles

Kids In Danger (KID) applauds the U.S. Senate for confirming President Biden’s nominee for Commissioner of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Richard Trumka Jr., by unanimous consent.

KID looks forward to working with Mr. Trumka and his team to protect children from hazards such as unstable dressers, unsafe infant sleep products, ingestion hazards like magnets and button batteries, and more.

Earlier this year, the Senate confirmed President Biden’s nomination of Alex Hoehn-Saric as Chairman of the CPSC and we urge the Senate to immediately confirm Mary Boyle as Commissioner of the CPSC so the agency can operate fully with five commissioners.
