On pizza regulations, Trump slices differently than his own FDA commissioner – Washingtom Eamnier

As the owner of 18 Domino’s stores in Texas, I do not cut corners, whether on pizzas or complying with the law. Unfortunately, on May 7 the law will become especially burdensome and unhelpful to my customers. That day, President Trump’s FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will implement a nationwide, Obama-era menu-labeling rule requiring restaurants with 20 or more locations to post in-store menu boards listing the calories of every item sold. via On pizza regulations, Trump slices differently than his own FDA commissioner Continue reading On pizza regulations, Trump slices differently than his own FDA commissioner – Washingtom Eamnier

A bill currently pending in the legislature would essentially ban the sale of books that include traditional Christian views on marriage and sexuality. via California To Ban the Sale … Continue reading California To Ban the Sale of Bibles? » Infowars
