Wait — you mean California voters have to weigh in on the obscure question of appropriate staffing levels at dialysis clinics — again? Didn’t we just do this? We did.

For the second time in as many elections, California voters are caught in the middle of a fight between private dialysis companies and a union with a history of taking its battles to the ballot.
