Use tape, not pushpins says AB1820

Share with your friends


AB1820 is seeking to outlaw choking hazards in day care facilities by specifically attacking the use of pushpins.  While the bill was originally introduced into session to only prohibit the use of pushpins in day care facilities, the author has now opened up the bill to all chocking hazards.  The bill seeks to prohibit choking hazards in any licensed day care facility (non-licensed are not addressed) where children 6 and younger have access.  The bill cites food items as being the number one choking hazard to small children, yet the author specifically seeks out pushpins.  This bill needs to be watched for further developments.  Listen to the podcast here.
