A Los Angeles City Councilwoman has proposed a two-year moratorium that would limit the number of new fast food restaurants opening in South Los Angeles. Councilwoman Jan Perry says it's part of a larger plan to give healthier options to the lower income neighborhoods.

Perry and Blair Salisbury, president of the Los Angeles Chapter of the California Restaurant Association, debate the moratorium's merits.
