Another New Law Coming

I felt the need to share this new law. And the affects that it will have on some. This is a Federal Law so it effects all 50 states.
Law Threatens Used Clothing Stores
Thatís because a new federal safety law is written so broadly, it could force these stores to stop selling kids clothes entirely. And why?
The new law was passed after lead and other chemicals were found in mostly Chinese-made toys and clothing.
The new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act takes effect February 10. It requires any store to certify that clothing sold for children 12 and under is free of dye laced with lead or other chemicals.
Can someone tell me what is coming next ? And what will be done with these items of old. Now that is a real deep thought. How many quilts are made of these materials ? (only because I'm still working on a quilt, made me think of just one item these materials have been used in). And how will we throw these items away?
