Doctors vs lawyers in Washington State
Voters will decide the battle over dueling malpractice initiatives in November. Both sides are trying to outspend the other: “No question facing voters this November has drawn political powerhouses the likes of those waging the battle over dueling medical malpractice measures.
The only common ground in the contest, which has shattered fund-raising records, is this: The stakes are highest for patients.
Combined, the two sides have raised more than $8 million for their competing Initiatives 330 and 336, which offer dramatically different takes on overhauling the state’s malpractice laws.”
