Prop 4 - What is it about?

Proposition 4 is one of the bond measures on the November ballot and it has to do with funding for children's hospitals. 

Children's hospitals in California serve more than 2 million sick children each year no matter what families can pay. 

Children's hospitals have gaps in funding because they don't turn away people just on financial need.

Proposition 4 would borrow $1.5 billion to fill those gaps as well as to increase capacity provides the latest technology and advances pediatric research to cure more children.  

The $1.5 billion is the smallest of four on the November, but it still would mean taxpayers would be on the hook for the added $80 million over the next 35 years. 

Opponents of this proposition say that the interest on that bond isn't worth it and we need to look at the bigger picture when it comes to improving outcomes for California healthcare. 

What does my vote mean?

YES: The state is allowed to sell those general bonds to help children's hospitals

NO: The state would not be able to sell the bonds
