Advocacy N O O N P R O P. 4 6 Skyrocketing Medical Costs This measure, written by trial lawyers, would make it easier and more profitable for law- yers to sue doctors and hospitals, causing lawsuits and jury awards to skyrocket and driving up medical costs for consumers and state and local governments. You could lose your trusted doctor and vital services, as well as your personal privacy. Y E S O N P R O P. 4 7 Safe Neighborhoods and Schools This commonsense reform would change sentencing for low-level nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. This will stop wasting prison space and save hundreds of millions annually, which will be redirected to K-12 schools and treatment programs. It protects public safety and reduces the barriers that many with felony convictions for nonviolent crimes face to becoming productive citizens.
