WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 6, 2018) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives today before the House passed her Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act (H.R. 772), legislation to provide flexibility for businesses and ensure calorie count information is available to consumers. The bill passed the House today with a strong bipartisan vote of 266-157. 

She said, “This bill, at its very core, is about flexibility. Flexibility for businesses to meet the requirements of the rule and present this calorie information in a way that makes sense for them and their customers.

“This legislation provides flexibility in how restaurants provide the nutritional information. It makes it easier for customers to actually see and understand the information because it’s displayed where customers actually place orders – including by phone, online, or through mobile apps.

“By bringing this rule into the 21st Century, customers can trust they are getting the reliable information they need in an easy to access, consumer-friendly way.”
