Support plummets for California health initiatives

Posted on 09/11/2014 @ 10:00 AM

The Sacramento Bee today reports on the latest Field Poll results that support for a pair of health-related ballot initiatives is eroding, though a large portion of voters remain undecided eight weeks before the Nov. 4 election.

Proposition 45 would require health insurance rate changes to be approved by the state’s elected insurance commissioner and Proposition 46 would mandate random drug testing of doctors and quadruple the state’s $250,000 limit on medical malpractice awards. CJAC has taken an oppose position on both.
