September 21, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Those popular food trucks around Los Angeles County are about to get the same kind of letter grades that restaurants get.The L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday unanimously to tentatively approve an ordinance requiring that trucks receive the grades based on their performance in health inspections.

A food truck vendors group welcomes the grades.

They say they expect a lot of people to see trucks with the letter "A" prominently displayed and that could persuade more people to eat at them.
