A bill over padding placed on the inside of a baby crib drew a long debate at state capitol on Wednesday. A bill introduced by Rep. Emily McCasey a Lockport Democrat would ban the production and sale of baby crib bumpers. She says its’ an effort to fight Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The bill drew a sharp attack from Rep. Rita Mayfield a Waukegan Democrat. She says no baby deaths can be directly attributed to the pads. McCasey’s bill passed and now the bill heads to the Senate where a similar bill died last year. Chicago has already banned the sale of bumper pads.
