Bill to Curtail Menu Labeling Requirements Passes House E&C Committee


Yesterday, the “Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act” (H.R. 772), introduced by Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Tony Cardenas (D-CA), was approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee by a vote of 39-14. The bill would give retailers the flexibility they need to comply with the menu labeling regulations. Earlier in the week, PMAA joined 200 companies and organizations in a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee urging the Committee to approve H.R. 772. Initial industry estimates put compliance with the current rule at more than $1 billion and rising due to the regulatory hurdles. Companion legislation has been introduced by Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Angus King (I-ME), (S. 261).

Originally, FDA enforcement of the menu labeling rule was expected to begin on May 5, 2017. However, a few days before the enforcement date, the FDA extended compliance and enforcement of the menu labeling rule until May 7, 2018. The delay is good news for convenience store owners as it allows more time for Congress or the Administration to correct the onerous requirements. PMCI has submitted comments to the FDA requesting numerous changes to their final proposal. Comments are due tomorrow, August 2nd.
