BILL NUMBER:S854

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the public health law, in relation to regulating
cadmium in substrate of children's
jewelry

PURPOSE:

This bill would establish requirements for certain substances in
children's jewelry, consistent with best available science on
protecting children from potential exposure risks, recognizing that
total heavy metal content limits by weight are inconsistent with
available science.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

section 1 of the bill defines "child," "children's jewelry,"
"jewelry," and contains exclusions from such definitions.

Also sets forth prohibitions in the manufacture of children's jewelry,
including the use of heavy metals in paint and surface coatings in
excess of certain levels prescribed therein as determined through
solubility testing defined in the ASTM International Safety
Specifications on Toy Safety, ASTM F-963 (formerly known as the
American Society for Testing and Materials) ; cadmium in plastic
components in excess of certain screening levels prescribed therein
as determined through solubility testing defined in EN-71-3 (the
European Union Standard that concerns the" safety of toys" and
specifies requirements for the migration of certain elements) ; and
cadmium in metal components in excess of certain screening levels
prescribed therein as determined through testing procedures approved
by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Lead in children's
jewelry, toys and other children's products is separately regulated
under federal law.

Section 2 This act shall take effect one year after it shall have
become law, with provisions.

JUSTIFICATION:

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal
agency that administers federal laws concerning children's and other
consumer products. The CPSC protects children and consumers in
general, from exposure to hazardous substances, such as cadmium and
other heavy metals in consumer products, under the Federal Hazardous
Substances Act (FHSA).

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2011-12: S.4055A - Passed the Senate; Died in consumer affairs

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This Act shall take effect one year after it shall have become a law,
and children's jewelry manufactured on or after such date shall
comply with the requirements of this Act.

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the highway law, in relation to designating a portion of the
state highway system in the town of Ellicott as the "Lucille Ball-Desi
Arnaz Memorial Bridge"

PURPOSE:
To recognize the historic significance of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz
to the Jamestown area by naming the bridge on Interstate 86 which
crosses over North Main Street in the Town of Ellicott as the
"Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Memorial Bridge."

Transportation shall provide for the installation and maintenance of

known as the star of the television show "I Love Lucy," in Jamestown,
New York, in 1911. In light of this occasion and in recognition of
the enormous popularity and influence she enjoyed throughout her long
career, naming this bridge near Jamestown in honor of her, and "I
Love Lucy" co-star Desi Arnaz, will distinguish this area as having
held a significant role in her life, while helping to promote the
area as a popular tourist destination.
