Authorizes bonds funding construction at hospitals providing children's health care. Initiative statute
A YES vote supports authorizing the State to issue $ 1.4 Billion in bonds to build, expand, renovate, and equip children's hospitals in California. This includes 13 hospitals across California.
In the Bay Area, this would benefit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital & Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Stanford).
HOW DID IT GET ON MY BALLOT:
Backers of Prop. 4 collected enough signatures of registered California voters to qualify it as a ballot measure.

A private citizen named Gary Wesley has written the official "Opponent's Argument" against Prop. 4. There are no major groups or elected officials who have stated their opposition.
IMPACT TO TAXPAYERS:
State estimates the bond would cost taxpayers $ 2.9 Billion over 35 years.
