Cal regulators step in where BushCo leaves federal hole

California AG Jerry Brown is suing 20 companies over lead levels in children’s toys. The suit includes both defendants like Mattel and retailers like Wal-Mart.

But, he’s willing to settle out of court.

IF the defendants agree to increased inspections, among other things.

I’m sure BushCo is so out to lunch that the U.S. DOJ won’t even file an amicus brief on behalf of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Between this, and suits over CAFÉ standards and carbon dioxide emissions by cars, it’s almost as if there’s a parallel United States government in Sacramento at times.

No, Ahhnold himself is far from perfect. But, the California statehouse is more than Der Governator.
