MARINA DEL REY, Calif. — U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission commissioner Ann Marie Buerkle extended an olive branch to fashion executives keeping a wary eye on potential regulatory changes.
“I’m sensitive to what businesses are up against,” said the former congresswoman, who spoke at a seminar here last week and grew up working in her parents’ grocery store before going on to become a nurse and then U.S. congresswoman. Before the commission makes changes, Buerkle said, she would like to know “what’s broken, what needs to be fixed and why are we doing this.”
