Joint letter to U.S. Senate opposing S. 261, a bill to weaken calorie labeling at chain restaurants

We, the undersigned organizations, write to ask you to oppose the so-called Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act (S. 261). We do not think it is common sense to weaken a policy that would help Americans to make their own, informed choices about how many calories to eat at a time of record high obesity rates. Rather than just providing modest flexibility as touted, S. 261 would repeal and significantly weaken key parts of menu labeling policy.
