Your Call: How would Proposition 46 impact medical care in California?

 

  

On the October 29th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a debate on Proposition 46, the ballot initiative that would raise the cap on damages in malpractice suits and enforce mandatory drug testing on doctors. Supporters of Proposition 46 argue that medical negligence is too common and pain and suffering damage awards are too low. Opponents say the initiative isn’t about protecting patients, but increasing medical lawsuit payouts to trial lawyers. Election Day is next week - what questions do you have on Proposition 46? It’s Your Call, with Hana Baba, and you.
