ANA Opposes Food Labeling and Advertising Restrictions in Connecticut

ANA has written a letter to the Speaker of the Connecticut House of Representatives Brendan Sharkey expressing our strong opposition to House Bills 6519 and 6527, both of which are currently pending before the Connecticut House of Representatives. These bills would impose new requirements for the labeling and advertising of certain foods in Connecticut. ANA expressed concern about the First Amendment and Commerce Clause issues these restrictions could raise. Additionally, given the large amount of food advertisements that originate outside of Connecticut, we also stated that these bills could impose significant penalties on marketers using national or regional media to advertise in Connecticut, even if such ads were legal in other states.

If you have questions, you may contact Dan Jaffe (djaffe@ana.net) in our Washington office at 202-296-1883.
