Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act
Section 1405 of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act specifies that the Commission shall establish a grant program for each of fiscal years 2009 and 2010. However, Congress has not yet appropriated funds for this program. When Congress funds this grant program, we will notify the States. To provide assistance to States that may be considering enacting statutes (or amending existing statutes), U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff has prepared this draft guidance document that describes the technical requirements of Section 1406 of the Act.
To be eligible for a grant, as provided for in Section 1405 of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, a State, at a minimum, must have the following requirements in place.
