Lawmakers Try to Limit Hospital Executives’ Pay Packages
The Bay Citizen

California lawmakers on Wednesday approved a bill that would require taxpayer-funded health care districts to restrict lavish payouts to executives.

The bill, authored by Assemblyman Luis A. Alejo, a Democrat from Salinas, would prohibit health care districts from giving financial perks to retiring administrators that are not available to other employees. The hospitals could no longer make inflated lump-sum payments exclusively to executives based on their performance or years of service, for example.
