Pryor bill gets Senate panel endorsement

Abstract:
A Senate committee endorsed a bill Tuesday by Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., aimed at preventing dangerous products from ending up in stores and in homes.

The bill would authorize additional funding to increase the number of employees of the Consumer Product Safety Commission to at least 500 workers by 2013, to improve outdated laboratories and to place additional safety commission agents at U.S. ports, Pryor's office said in a news release.

The measure would authorize funding levels over seven years, beginning in 2009 at $80 million and increasing 10 percent a year through 2015. In 2008 and 2009, an additional $40 million would be authorized to upgrade agency labs and $1 million would be allotted to research the safety of nanotechnology in products.
