Soon, the 111th Congress will come to an end. Therefore, we have limited time to change the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008, or commonly known as the lead law, to exclude youth-model motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). It is important Congress amends the lead law before the stay of enforcements, issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expire February 10, 2011 for testing, and May 1, 2011 for distribution and sales.

While the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) applauds the CPSC for implementing the stays, they do not solve the real issue, which is the law itself. Despite the stays, it is unclear whether state attorneys general will also decline to enforce the CPSIA. The sale of youth-model motorcycles and ATVs is still technically illegal. Even though a stay means that dealers would not be subject to fines or penalties imposed by the CPSC, state attorneys general would still be able to prosecute violators if they chose to do so. Youth-model motorcycles and ATVs should be exempt from the law, and Congress needs to act now to make that happen.
