AFP Leads Coalition Calling on Congress to Fix Overreaching Obamacare Menu Labeling Rule

Nov 30, 2017 by AFP

Arlington, Va. – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s leading grassroots advocate for economic freedom, today led a coalition of 20 conservative organizations urging lawmakers to fix the rigid Food and Drug Administration (FDA) menu labeling rule that requires companies that have 20 or more locations to list nutritional information on their menus. This FDA rule fails to account for the variety of businesses impacted by this new regulation, and its vague, overly broad definition has caused widespread confusion among many small business owners. In a letter to senators and representatives, the groups called on Members of Congress to support the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act (H.R. 772 and S. 261), which would correct the egregious problems with the overreaching Obamacare menu labeling rule.
