Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., took some ribbing for introducing 17 bills last month to suspend the duties on different types of footwear, from shoes “with open toes or heels” to “certain house slippers.” But The Hill newspaper reported last week that Brownback also introduced three measures to suspend the duties on “padded potty seats,” “traveler padded-potty seats” and “contoured padded-infant potty seats.” In both cases, the amendments were aimed at helping Kansas companies, first for Topeka-based Payless ShoeSource, then for Mommy’s Helper, a Wichita business.
