Crib control.

New this year in Minnesota is a requirement that day care centers perform safety checks and maintain documentation of the make and model for every crib used by children in their care. The legislation is designed to prevent the injury and possible deaths of infants in unsafe baby cribs, according to sponsors Representatives Katie Sieben and Ellen Anderson. Child care providers are required to perform annual checks against the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, as well as monthly safety inspections. The law also prohibits the sale of unsafe cribs by a commercial user, and lodging establishments are prohibited from providing unsafe cribs to guests.
