CHILDREN ‑- HEALTH ‑- SALE ‑- FIRE ‑- SALE OF FLAMMABLE CHILDREN'S SLEEPWEAR (1) The term "children's sleepwear" as defined in § 3, chapter 211, Laws of 1973, 1st Ex. Sess., (RCW 70.110.030) includes both infant sizes 0-6X and children's sizes 7-14; in addition, it also includes junior or adult sizes of sleepwear which are the physical equivalent of those children's sizes even though not designated as such. (2) The provisions of chapter 211, Laws of 1973, 1st Ex. Sess., are currently enforceable within the purview of the preemption clauses of the Federal Flammable Fabrics Act and Consumer Product Safety Act, and their enforceability with respect to children's sizes 7-14 or the equivalent is not dependent upon the effectiveness of certain federal regulations establishing flammability standards for those sizes of children's sleepwear which are not scheduled to take effect until May 1, 1975.
