The bill “is needed to protect consumers from deceptive labels,” said Rep. Joe Newland, R-Neodesha, who carried the bill on the House floor. “Meat labels require pre-approval from USDA, but no similar requirements exist for non-meat products.” Newland told the Capital-Journal that restaurants weren’t included in the bill because “our main consideration is that consumer at the grocery store” and “strictly a label on a product.”
