Here in Texas, a law was recently passed that all children under 8 (unless child is over 4' 9") must be in a booster seat. The old law was 38" regardless of age. We had just recently ditched the car seats of our kids (now at 40" and 44"). So, in order to be lawy-abiding citizens, we ordered boosters from Amazon.com for about $50 (for both) including the free super saver shipping. They got here yesterday. The kids really like them so far.
My husband, on the other hand, is rolling his eyes at the unfunded mandates. He says that they should count as tax payment (though Texas doesn't have income tax, but property tax instead).
So any recent unfunded mandates in your part of the country?
