Legislation to Reduce Calorie Disclosure Regulations Clears Key House Subcommittee

Legislation to loosen regulations requiring restaurants and grocery stores to list the number of calories in each prepared food item they sell was approved by a voice vote in the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, sending the bill to the full committee for further consideration. The menu labeling rules, required under ObamaCare, have come under fire from industry groups and many lawmakers. Pizza joints are particularly concerned that the endless possibilities of toppings could render compliance nearly impossible. [11/5/15]
