National Council of Chain Restaurants to Launch Coalition Campaign
The National Council of Chain Restaurants (NCCR) will launch a new, coalition-based grassroots campaign aimed at repealing the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) at an upcoming Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, June 20, 2013 at 9:30 a.m.
The federal RFS mandate drastically manipulates the corn marketplace and increases commodity and food costs across the supply chain – from farmers and chain restaurants to consumers and diners. NCCR, along with other coalition partners and Members of Congress, will hold a press conference to launch “Feed Food Fairness: Take RFS Off the Menu.”
Speakers include the honorable Bob Goodlatte, the Honorable Jim Matheson, Robert J. Green of the National Council of Chain Restaurants and others.
The press conference will take place at 2226 Rayburn House Office Building in Washington.
