The question on the ballot was, "Initiative Measure No. 336 concerns medical malpractice, including insurance, health care provider licensing, and lawsuits. This measure would require notices and hearings on insurance rate increases, establish a supplemental malpractice insurance program, require license revocation proceedings after three malpractice incidents, and limit numbers of expert witnesses in lawsuits. Should this measure be enacted into law?"
