Lead Law (CPSIA)

The CPSIA (Consumer Produce Safety Improvement Act) is a law that requires things that are being sold to children (12 and under) in the US (toys, books, clothing, etc) must be inspected for lead.
I think the real problem is things that are being made in other countries. The price to have your things inspected is expensive. This will be a real blow to small businesses, home-school sellers, home-schoolers, even big businesses, etc.
I think this is really extreme and ridiculous, I mean, if my parents gave me a bike, would I eat it for lunch?
The government keeps talking about helping the economy, but this will not help it, this will hurt it.
