Congressman Frank Guinta worked the counter -- and met with lobbyists from the National Association of Convenience Stores during a stop at Cumberland Farms in Portsmouth.
He said he would work to make sure compliance with federal regulations like the new food labelling law isn’t unwieldy for convenience stores:
I will now, when I’m back in Washington, take a look at the current rule. And there’s legislation to fix that – proposed legislation -- so I’m going to take a look at all of that.
Although Cumberland Farms is a Massachusetts company, Guinta says he considers the stores in NH to be local small businesses.
