Sacramento Business Journal

Consumer Watchdog and bereaved parents who lost two children to medical negligence turned in 840,000 signatures Monday to qualify an initiative for the November ballot that would raise the $250,000 state cap on damages for pain and suffering to more than $1 million.

Proponents need 504,760 verified signatures to land the measure on the Nov. 5 midterm elections ballot.
