Executive Summary

Commissioner Mary Sheila Gall's confirmation to chair consumer product safety agency delayed due to postponement of June 6 Senate Commerce Committee hearing. Sen. James Jeffords' (I-Vt.) defection from GOP continues to disrupt committee actions as panels are realigned. Trade groups, who view Gall as more industry-friendly, have expressed concern about delay (1"The Tan Sheet" May 14, In Brief). Gall, a holdover from George H. W. Bush's administration, is seen as less apt to aggressively publicize unsafe products. She recently voted to proceed with rulemaking on mandatory Rx-to-OTC switch child-resistant packaging regs, although action on rule is expected to move slowly, according to CHPA
