Health care districts — an anachronism?
San Mateo Daily Journal

This Wednesday, the state Assembly’s Accountability and Review Committee will hold a hearing on whether health care districts which no longer run hospitals should continue to operate and receive property taxes. The chair, Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, D-Sacramento, said it could trigger new legislation to tighten controls on how health care districts spend public funds. The committee will meet at 9:15 a.m. in Sacramento. The Peninsula Health Care District has been asked to testify. The committee would benefit hearing from average citizens in addition to district representatives and lobbyists.
