WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 2017, the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2015:

“Our food service industry is drowning under the current flood of regulations coming out of Washington. The bill we passed today will bring common sense to the FDA’s radical menu labeling regulations, giving much-needed relief to thousands of small businesses across the country. I want to congratulate my colleague Cathy McMorris Rogers for her leadership in bringing this bill forward to provide relief to restaurants and save hard-working families from more than $1 billion in regulatory costs.”
