Oklahoma Takes Lead on Lead Law

Oklahoma lawmakers are proposing a resolution this week to help reign in a new law limiting lead in childrens products.

Last year reaction to Chinese toys containing lead resulted in the passage of a Federal regulation named the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. The gist of the law is to regulate the lead content of products intended for children under age 12. But the regulation has been applied to a wide array of products- including motorized vehicles.

Since February 10th, the date the regulation went into effect, the 50cc motorcycle and ATV business has essentially come to a standstill. We visited with one local dealer in Tulsa to find out how this regulation is affecting businesses in Oklahoma.
