Melissa Breach,  KRON, Prop 4, Children's hospitals

SACRAMENTO (KRON) - A measure on the ballot would boost funding for California children's hospitals, but not everyone agrees with how the money would be distributed.

Proposition 4 would authorize $1.5 billion in bonds to fund grants for construction, renovation, expansion, and other upgrades to children's hospitals.

Press Mention

I know from personal experience the importance of children’s hospitals. Six decades ago, I had heart surgery at the best one in Illinois. It saved me from an early death.

Yet I’m voting “no” on Proposition 4, the Nov. 6 measure to authorize $1.5 billion in bonds to support construction at the 11 officially designated children’s hospitals ion California – eight non-profit private hospitals and five University of California medical centers.

California needs to better prepare for wildfires, drought, a changing snowpack, and extreme weather events. Proposition 68 will help. It will fund projects that reduce the risk of natural disasters, boost forest health, improve water quality, safeguard our water supplies and protect sensitive wildlife habitat. Prop 68 also provides new funding for parks and recreation – something my kids and I care about very much. Prop. 68 would enable local groups such as the Placer Land Trust to leverage charitable support to protect more land for current and future generations.
