WASHINGTON — Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) made national headlines for using North Carolina’s hand-washing regulations at restaurants as an example of government over-regulation.

The Washington Post picked up on Tillis’ comments he made at the end of an appearance on Monday.

Tillis remarked that restaurants shouldn’t be required by the government to tell employees they have to wash their hands. He said restaurants should be able to “opt out” as long as they make it clear to patrons that they do not follow that policy.

He added that the market would take care of most businesses that chose to opt out, saying they would probably go out of business.
