COMMENT REGARDING ANPR ON BUNK BEDS
Commissioner,
- .

I am writing in regard to the advanced notice of rule making pertaining to bunk beds. I truly feel that g’oing forward with the mandatory standard in the design and construction of bunk beds is the only correct action to take. If even one child’s death is caused by nonconformance to the voluntary standard, that should be sufficient to tell us as an educated society that the voluntary nature of the stand;ard is not good enough. There were in fact 54 deaths and over 100,000 injuries from 1990 to 1995. This is obviously overwhelming evidence that mandatory standards must be passed to save this nation’s precious children. Sincerely,

l%d, /a, I??8
