KQED Radio

California voters on Tuesday approved Proposition 4, which authorizes the state to sell $1.5 billion in bonds for children’s hospitals to be used mainly on infrastructure projects. As of midnight on Tuesday, the measure had nearly 60 percent support.

More than two-thirds of the bond money will go to eight nonprofit children’s hospitals. Smaller amounts will go to University of California children’s hospitals and hospitals not specifically designated for children, but with a children’s program or a children’s wing.
