Its time to discuss two bills that should already be in affect. I'm shocked that its 2008 and both are legal now. Its sad to know some lipstick has lead in it. I sure didn't know that information. I went to look at my lipstick after learning its one of the bills in California. Have you checked your lipstick ladies? The other just made me mad that its not going into affect until 2012, if it passes in the Senate. Its the bill to make it illegal for products to have more than 100 parts per million of lead for children 12 or under. I think from reading the article a few times everyone was not in support of the second bill. What are the Assembly People thinking, as a parent I can't believe there would be any reason for this bill to get any no votes. Don't they know about lead? I know I'll be looking at how they voted closely. People need to know the bills are being discussed, so I will be posting more of them this year. California always has a lot of bills, but many of them should have already been passed. The safety of the residents should be important to all of us, as we all know these problems are in other states also.

is there any sites that would tell you why they ones who didn't want it didn't want for\ I mean they must have had some reason, like the whole economy would collapse or something.

The local elected people and how they voted is in my local paper. I just canceled my paper and may renew because of the information that I will miss now. These are important bills. The local paper has a web site, but you have to subscribe to read the web site. Personally, I wish they would change their policy and make the information available for everyone. The paper has been in financial trouble because of the economy, so they raised their rates. My husband suggested posting more articles on Mylot and I could earn the money by the good stories with information that everyone doesn't already know now. He is probably right.

I also was surprised to learn that lead was in many lipsticks. I don't wear lipstick everyday. I wear it for special events only. I also do not wear a lot of makeup. I like to let my skin breathe. I encourage my daughters to wear a lipbalm rather than a heavy lipstick. We do need to be aware of the items that we apply to our bodies as well as the foods we put into our bodies.

I wear lipstick for special occasions. Now I'm going to be lipstick free for now. Its sad to think of how much lead I could have worn as a teenager.

There's an old saying, "follow the money". That's how you'll find out why the bill isn't law asap. Someone is making money from others' misfortunes. It's up to our parents, now that we know about things like this, to do all that we can not to buy things that are harmful to our children. We can't, and shouldn't, depend on big government to protect us because they don't care. Power and money is ALL they care about, for the most part.

I have to agree we must make the right purchases and inform our children why they can't have a certain toy. The children need us to protect them. Its sad that money is more important than children safety.
