Supporters on Monday are expected to submit more than 800,000 signatures to put the medical reform measure, which would also require doctors to submit to drug tests and make it harder for prescription drug abusers to get their pills, on the November ballot.

Consumer Watchdog's Jamie Court told KCAL9's Dave Bryan that doctors just don't want to change.
"They don't want to held accountable to the same rules that you and I are. If a child dies in a car accident, a jury decides the value of their life and how negligent the driver was. If a child dies in a hospital, the cost is never more than $250,000 to a company like Kaiser and that's not enough to change. I think the doctors who oppose this should be ashamed,"
