Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) introduced bipartisan legislation alongside Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) that would stop the production, distribution and sales of crib bumpers in the U.S. This legislation, called the Safe Cribs Act, is similar to a bill that passed the U.S. House of Representatives in 2019. Duckworth anticipates the Safe Cribs Act will soon pass the Senate.
“The regulations, the laws around these things have changed over the years, it’s hard for people to keep up with what they are,” Duckworth said. “But the key to all of this is just keeping our babies safe.”
