Legislation questions California hospitals’ nonprofit status
Fox News

Some of California’s most powerful unions are pressuring nonprofit hospitals to prove that they provide enough charitable care to justify their tax-exempt status.

The California Nurses Association is pushing legislation that would set statewide standards for what hospitals can count as charity care.

Under the bill, a hospital would have to show why it should keep its nonprofit status if revenue exceeds spending by more than 10 percent.
