Jim DeBoo, Campaign Manager of Patients and Providers to Protect Access and Contain Health Costs announced that trial lawyers and their allies filed signatures with county elections officials, signaling the first major step toward qualifying their proposed ballot initiative for the November 2014 statewide ballot. The lawyers' deceptive measure would make it easier and more profitable for lawyers to sue doctors, nurses, community health centers, hospitals and other care providers. The measure would significantly increase costs for health care consumers by billions each year, and jeopardize patient access to care all across California. From rural to underserved communities, this measure would have a devastating effect on the health care system.
