Common Sense Menu Labeling

On February 12, 2016, the People’s House passed McMorris Rodgers’ bipartisan initiative that gives restaurants, grocers, and convenience stores the freedom to provide nutrition information in a way consistent with how they operate and how their customers actually place orders — including by phone, online, or through mobile apps. The Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act (H.R. 2017) now awaits consideration in the U.S. Senate.
