Not all regulations come about in the halls of Congress. There are over 50 regulatory agencies that have the power to create and enforce regulations that affect how the nation’s businesses operate. The Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Food and Drug Administration are just some of the agencies making rules that apply to the nation’s truckstops and travel plazas. NATSO tracks a variety of regulatory issues, from truck idling and tobacco to ultra-low-sulfur diesel and underground storage tank requirements.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its final rule outlining a voluntary quality assurance program (QAP) to provide regulated parties a structured way to assure that Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) entering into the market are valid.

The House Appropriations Committee recently added report language to its appropriations legislation clarifying the congressional intent in its menu-labeling law. The action comes as the Food and Drug Administration prepares to issue menu labeling rules, which some have criticized as going beyond what Congress envisioned.
The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW), of which NATSO is a member, urged the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to withdraw its proposed rule regarding union elections arguing that it will create significant election challenges for employers without achieving the Board’s intended goal.
Following three years of review, the Food and Drug Administration has sent final menu labeling rules to the White House Office of Management and Budget, kicking off a 90-day review process.
