Vote Yes

Vote No

Supports authorizing $1.5 billion in bonds for the construction, expansion, renovation, and equipping of children's hospitals in California. Opposes authorizing $1.5 billion in bonds for the construction, expansion, renovation, and equipping of children's hospitals in California.

This initiative is the third since 2004 by the California Children's Hospital Association, and the previous two won easy approval. Association members have contributed more than $10 million to a campaign that lacks organized opposition.

The nonpartisan state Legislative Analyst's Office says the new borrowing carries a repayment cost of $80 million annually over the next 35 years. Supporters say that children's hospitals need public bond funding for capital improvements and modernization because their finances are burdened by providing expensive but uncompensated care. "Over one million times each year, children are cared for at these hospitals without regard to their family's ability to pay," the measure says.
