Action Needed: Support S. 261

Ask your Representative to Support S. 261!

 
After having passed the House via bipartisan vote, menu labeling legislation has been unable to move forward in the Senate. We need your help to move this important legislation forward! S. 261,, the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act, is bipartisan legislation that would provide relief and common sense fixes to those supermarkets (20 or more locations operating under the same banner and offering similar menu items for sale) that are covered under the FDA Chain Restaurant Menu Labeling law. The menu labeling regulations go into effect on May 7, 2018.

Some of the reforms in the legislation include:

  • Define menu board as the primary listing for the consumer as opposed to FDA's regulations which require everywhere the item is listed to be labeled.
  • Protect covered entities from frivolous lawsuits through private right of actions.
  • Establish a good faith threshold to ensure businesses aren't penalized for inadvertent human error.
  • Flexibility to those establishments that carry unique items at only one location.

 
Please take a moment and click below to send a letter to your Senator on the Senate HELP Committee and Tweet @ them (a Tweet counts as 7 letters according to polls) and urge them to support S. 261, the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2017!
 

Every letter and every Tweet counts!
