On top of calories, they will also have to post other nutritional information, such as trans fat, calories, grams of saturated fast, carbohydrates, etc.

The new plan will impact chains which have 15 or more locations across California.

This new plan in Los Angeles comes after the California Assemply approved a similar state-wide plan.

The state-wide ruling would force chain restaurants with 20 or more locations to post calorie counst on their menus across the entire state.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to approve this once a budget is set.

The new law would go into effect in 2011, and would make California the first state to enact such a law.
