Bill Would Require Nevada Eateries to Post Nutrition Info

Posted: Updated:

Eateries with 10 or more locations in Nevada would have to post nutritional information about their menu items if state lawmakers approve a bill from a Las Vegas Democrat.

Assemblywoman Lucy Flores presented the proposal Wednesday before the Assembly Health and Human Services committee.

She says the measure would help consumers make better decisions about what they're eating.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is already developing regulations requiring chains with 20 or more locations to post nutritional information on menus. That requirement's part of the federal health care overhaul.

Flores says she wants stricter requirements in Nevada.

The Las Vegas Sun reports (http://bit.ly/ZrAamf) the Nevada Restaurant Association and others opposed the bill, saying the problem should be addressed at the federal level.

The committee didn't vote on the measure.
