Help Slow Down New Overtime Rules

The U.S. Department of Labor is expected to release their final rule governing federal overtime rules in the near future. Based on their draft proposal they may more than double the existing threshold, possibly dramatically increasing labor costs in many convenience stores. Recently, Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN), along with Representatives Tim Walberg (R-MI) and John Kline (R-MN), introduced S. 2707 and H.R. 4773. The legislation, the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act, would require DOL to go back to the drawing board with its overtime proposal. In particular, the legislation would require DOL to conduct a comprehensive economic analysis of the impact of mandatory overtime expansion on small businesses before issuing a final rule. In just two minutes you can send a letter NACS has drafted on your behalf to your Senators and Representatives urging them to co-sponsor this important legislation.

Ask Senate to Support Reasonable Menu Labeling Requirements S. 2217

Senator’s Roy Blunt (R-MO) & Angus King (I-ME) have once again introduced legislation that would require FDA to rewrite their “menu labeling” rule in such a way that all chains of retail can reasonably comply. The current rule, which goes into effect sometime next year, would be expensive and burdensome for most convenience retailers to comply with. S 2217 would change the rule to make compliance make sense for convenience and other retailers while still providing consumers with the information they may want when making their food choices. In just two minutes you can send a letter NACS has drafted on your behalf to your Senators urging them to co-sponsor this important legislation.
