Trump Receives Right-Wing Wish List to Gut Rules on Climate, Nutrition, Wages

December 16, 2016

Yesterday I posted a reaction to a piece describing how new nutrition regulations might not come into being because of pushback from Congress… Common Dreams synopsis of the “right-wing wish list” includes this:

“[N]utrition is a key target,” Politico writes, noting that “the FDA’s update to the Nutrition Facts panel and updated nutrition standards for school meals, both priorities championed by first lady Michelle Obama,” are identified for elimination.

A wish list from the conservative House Freedom Caucus delivered to President-elect Donald Trump recommends dismantling a whopping 232 Obama administration rules and regulations that govern everything from school lunches and ceiling fans to net neutrality and the minimum wage for federal contract workers.
