Menu-Labeling Regulations – Congressional Subcommittee June 9th
HEARING: #SubHealth to Examine Common Sense Solution to Menu-Labeling Regulations
WASHINGTON, DC – The Subcommittee on Health, chaired by Rep. Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), announced a hearing for Friday, June 9, 2017, at 9 a.m. in room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Examining H.R. 772, The Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2017.”
#SubHealth will examine committee member and House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ (R-WA), H.R. 772, the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2017, legislation to provide clarity and flexibility for small businesses from costly and burdensome regulations.
“The Trump administration’s announcement last month to delay the rule and reopen the FDA’s comment period was an important step for small businesses that have felt the burdens of the mandate. It also gives us an opportunity to reexamine how we best empower consumers with information,” said Chairman Burgess. “Next week’s hearing is an important opportunity to further discuss Rep. McMorris Rodgers’ bill and the FDA’s efforts in moving toward a more reasonable standard that works for both consumers and small businesses.”
