SACRAMENTO –

The days of being charged $ 21 for an aspirin, more than $200 for crutches and $50 for Neosporin could be numbered.

Hundreds marched to the attorney general’s office to submit two ballot initiatives.

The first initiative handed over spells out how much a hospital can charge you for care.

Dave Regan, the man behind today’s march, says hospitals charge about 450% more than what it actually costs the hospital to care for you.

This law would lower that considerably.

The second initiative caps executives’ pay at $450,000—the same salary as President Obama.

Today was the first step in the initiatives getting on the ballot. The next is the collection of more than 500,000 signatures from registered voters.
