Many on LI not sweet on proposed salt ban

A state lawmaker has introduced a bill that would ban the use of salt in the preparation of restaurant food, something many on Long Island say leaves a bad taste in their mouths.

Under Assemblyman Felix Oritz?s (D-Brooklyn) bill, no restaurant "shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food.?

The exact implications of the bill are unclear. News 12 Long Island?s calls to Ortiz went unreturned.

?Honestly, I think it's quite absurd,? Donna Trapani, of the Long Island Dining Alliance, says. She says expecting restaurants to make those changes is unrealistic.

Some Long Island restaurant owners say such a ban would turn palates away.
