S.1902: Stop Tip-overs of Unstable, Risky Dressers on Youth Act

Overview

The STURDY Act would direct the Consumer Product Safety Commission to adopt a stronger, mandatory stability standard for clothing storage units within one year of enactment, following the streamlined rulemaking process that it has used for numerous children’s products. This new standard criterion must ensure children’s safety, including; an increased weight limit to simulate children up to six years old, testing under real-world conditions, and strengthened warning requirements.

H.R. 2211 is the House companion bill.
