Question One: How Much Would It Cost?

posted by John Baibak - 

(24/7 News) --  An independent analysis of a  controversial ballot measure is estimating how much it would cost. 

 If  Question 1 is approved by voters, it would create a system of  state-mandated patient-to-nurse ratios in health care facilities.  

The  Massachusetts Health Policy Commission says this would cost 676 to 949  million dollars for hospital and other care providers.  

The measure is  supported by the Massachusetts Nurses Association, but a report warns  some parts of health care could suffer and insurance premiums could be  affected.
