Harper’s Law, named after Harper Fried, requires that retailers selling new furniture over 27 inches tall must contain a tip restraint device and have a permanent warning label describing the dangers of tip-prone furniture to children.

“After many years of tireless advocacy, I’m so proud that Harper’s Law has been enacted in New York State,” said Senator Skoufis. “I was honored to fight for this bill’s passage alongside Assemblyman Zebrowski and I thank the Governor for signing this bill so quickly after it was delivered to his desk. After suffering the greatest tragedy of all, New York’s children will now be safer due to Harper’s family’s selfless efforts; I’m endlessly grateful for the impact their work will have on our state.”
