The legislation seems to take a sensible approach-manufacturers will have to demonstrate that their products are safe as opposed to our current system of finding out long after the product has been released.  Expect a huge push-back from lobbyists, as this would impose a financial burden on industry.  Safety shouldn't take a back seat to profits, though.
