Tucker Carlson CHICAGO -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association reports that Tucker Carlson, the cohost of Fox News's "Fox and Friends Weekend," will be a guest speaker at its Advocacy in Action public policy conference, planned for the nation's capital early in October.

NAMA senior vice-president of government affairs Eric Dell explained that "Our goal in executing Advocacy in Action is to deliver NAMA's message on priority policy issues related to healthy choices and government regulations, and to reinforce recognition of NAMA as the primary resource for federal policymakers on vending and refreshment services."

Members of the association's board of director and its Government Affairs committee, as well as "emerging leaders," will meet with members of Congress representing the districts in which they live and work. Discussions with elected officials will focus on health, nutrition, and wellness; electronic payment fees; coin and banknote design; and the effects of federal regulatory expansion on small and midsize businesses.

Conference participants plan also to meet with government agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, Mint, and Departments of Defense and Agriculture.

"As a veteran journalist and political commentator, we look forward to hearing Carlson's perspective on issues impacting the [vending] industry," Dell said.
