Statewide Menu-Labeling Bill Advances in Oregon

According to a news report from nrn.com, “A proposal to require chain restaurants throughout Oregon to post calorie counts is advancing to the House floor, after it was approved by a state legislative committee on Monday.”

“House Bill 2726 would require chain restaurants with 15 or more units to post calorie counts on menus and menu boards, as well as offer more detailed nutrition information at the point of sale in brochures or handouts,” said the story. “If adopted, Oregon would become the second state to require menu labeling, following California, where a similar law was approved last year and implementation will begin in July.”
