Bush bans lead in toys

It establishes the world's toughest standard for lead in toys.

The bill also increases the authority and budget of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Forty-five million toys and children's items were recalled last year, many of them made in China using lead paint.

The bill also bans phthalates, a chemical used to make plastic products softer and more flexible.
