Doctors and Lawyers on the November Ballot

Hosted by

The so-called “Patient Safety Initiative” would affect not just patients, but their doctors—and the lawyers who might or might not sue them for malpractice. Issues include medical privacy, insurance rates, attorneys’ fees and drug testing for doctors—the first in the nation. We’ll hear the pros and cons of Proposition 46.

Also, the Metropolitan Water District has threatened rationing because of the drought—but its own chairman uses twice as much water as the average Southern Californian. We’ll talk with him.
