Current and former Congressional staff and stakeholders will discuss historical, current and possible future Congressional perspectives and action on CPSC. What are the lessons learned in previous Congressional reviews of the Commission and its statutory authorities which might foreshadow future Hill activity? How does working on the Hill and then at CPSC or in the private sector change one's perspectives about CPSC and product safety policy?
