NRA Applauds LEAN Act Introduction in Congress

Beth Johnson, M.S., R.D., executive vice president of public affairs at the NRA, issued the following statement about the bipartisan act, which would establish a national, uniform standard for providing consumers with nutrition information in the nation’s chain restaurants:

“We believe the LEAN Act provides a very constructive and effective approach on the availability of nutrition information. Consumers deserve access to the same nutrition information no matter where they are across the country. The National Restaurant Association strongly supports the legislation’s goal to replace a patchwork of inconsistent state and local ordinances with a national standard for chain restaurants that empowers consumers to make the choices that are best for them and their families.

“The foodservice industry and lawmakers can best help patrons make smart food choices by working together to establish a uniform standard that will offer a broad range of detailed nutrition information in chain restaurants. The LEAN Act does just that and is a very positive step forward for consumers and restaurants.”
