Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed three measures to protect and create a safer environment for infants in New York. The legislation includes "Harper's Law," which requires furniture retailers to sell compatible tip restraint devices for certain furniture (S.1627B/A.4421B); another new law requiring child care facilities to anchor large furniture and electronics that can tip over (S.3563A/A.29A); and a ban on the sale of crib bumper pads, which have been blamed for infant death and serious injury (S.3788A/A.217A).
