Menu Labeling Bill Sees the LITE of Day


California's Menu Labeling Bill has experienced a rocky past but on September 30, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, sign into law a bill which would require restaurants to put calorie counts on their menus and indoor menu boards.

A special congratulations to the California Center for Public Health Advocacy for their success in winning another hard fought battle aimed at reducing California's childhood obesity crisis.

Schwarzenegger said the legislation was part of the state's push to set a national model for nutrition policy and to fight obesity, which costs the state $28.6 billion in health-card costs, lost productivity and workers compensation.
