FTC Care Label Hearing Trip to Washington, D.C.

FTC Care Label Hearing Trip to Washington, D.C.

I was very honored and excited to be chosen as a panelist, being the Secretary of the Professional Wetcleaners Associations (PWA), at one of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Roundtable Hearings scheduled for October 1st regarding the Care Label Rule. James, my colleagues from CA, and I were all ready and sitting in our hotel on the eve of Sunday, September 30th, anxiously watching the TV as the countdown to a possible government shutdown seemed inevitable. Alas, at midnight, CNN and other news stations across the country announced that it was so. Despite the postponement of the hearing, we decided to still stop by the FTC building. We took some pictures and then headed out to a brief bus tour of DC. Many federal offices and departments were closed so we were only able to take pictures from a distance at many monumental places. Nonetheless, it was a very memorable and special trip. I cannot wait to see when the re-scheduling will be. It looks like we will be heading to DC again…
