Oakland, CA, Children's Hospital funding losing at polls

San Francisco Chronicle, February 6, 2008
A pair of highly unusual ballot measures to rebuild Children's Hospital in Oakland, CA, appear to be headed toward defeat. Supporters say the nonprofit hospital is not earthquake safe, and they want to build a new, 250-bed hospital near the existing structure. Opponents said it is unfair for a private business to saddle taxpayers with debt, adding that it would set a bad precedent because other hospitals in the region would seek similar financing.
