Queens State Sen. Jose Peralta wants food cart vendors to post letter grades on their carts indicating if the carts have passed inspections. The proposed bill would require letter grades to be given to carts by local health departments, and would levy fines on failing carts. Mayor Michael Bloomberg established the letter grading system for restaurants in 2010.
