           SUMMARY  :   Updates California's toy safety statutes to reference  
          the most current versions of federal law and regulations.    
          Specifically,  this bill  :   

          1)Updates California's toy safety statutes that prohibit the  
            manufacture or sale of any toy that is coated with paints and  
            lacquers containing compounds of lead to reference the lead  
            content permitted by federal regulations adopted pursuant to the  
            Consumer Product Safety Act and the Consumer Product Safety  
            Improvement Act of 2008.

          2)Updates California's toy safety statutes that prohibit the  
            manufacture or sale of any toy that is coated with paints and  
            lacquers containing soluble compounds of antimony, arsenic,  
            cadmium, mercury, selenium, or barium to include chromium and to  
            reference identification of these compounds by ASTM  
            International Standard F963-08 "Standard Consumer Safety  
            Specification for Toy Safety" (ASTM F963). 

           EXISTING LAW  :  Prohibits a person from manufacturing, selling, or  
          exchanging, having in his or her possession with intent to sell or  
          exchange, or exposing or offering for sale or exchange to any  
          retailer, any toy that is: 

          1)Contaminated with any toxic substance;

                                                                  Page 2

          2)Coated with paints and lacquers containing compounds of lead of  
            which the lead content is in excess of that permitted by  
            regulations adopted pursuant to the Federal Hazardous Substances  
            Act; or,
          3)Coated with paints and lacquers containing soluble compounds of  
            antimony, arsenic, cadmium, mercury, selenium, or barium, as  
            identified by specified solubility tests.  

           FISCAL EFFECT  :  Unknown

           COMMENTS  :  This bill updates existing toy safety statutes to  
          reflect changes in federal law, regulations and standards.   In  
          addition, it adds chromium, as identified in the ASTM  
          International Standard, to the list of soluble compounds  
          prohibited in the paints and lacquers of toys.
