Menu labeling

Menu-labeling, as contained in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is not impacted by the introduction of the new healthcare plan. The compliance date for menu-labeling continues to be May 5, 2017.

Swipe fees

There continues to be a push in Congress to repeal the 2010 Dodd-Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which limited the ability for institutions to charge unreasonable debit card swipe fees on transactions. Because of Dodd-Frank, debit fees are nearly half of what they used to be. Contact your legislators to urge them NOT to repeal Dodd-Frank.
