The anti-MICRA ballot measure has officially qualified for the November 2014 ballot. Drafted by trial lawyers, the ballot measure is seeking to change current law to file more medical lawsuits against health care providers. If they get their way, medical lawsuits, payouts, and insurance premiums will skyrocket. Some doctors will be driven out of the profession by high costs, leaving more people without access to care.

As part of CAPP, UAPD has been building the capacity to defeat this dangerous initiative for the better part of a year.
