Calif. legislation would increase hospital reporting on executive compensation
Becker's Hospital Review

The California State Assembly Committee on Health on Tuesday passed a union-sponsored bill that would require hospitals and affiliated medical groups to file yearly reports on the compensation of their top paid executives, according to California Healthline.

The committee approved the bill, proposed by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez (D), by a vote of 11-6. Under the proposed law, hospitals and integrated health systems would submit reports on all executives whose total annual pay exceeds $250,000 to the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development.
