Enforcement of new lead testing rules halted for one year

The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday agreed to wait one year before enforcing new lead testing rules for the makers and importers of products for children 12 and under. The law, set to take effect Feb. 10, has had Asheville area book sellers, toy retailers, crafters and even libraries worried about the rules’ impact on them.
