The implementation of Proposition 102 will effectively break the link of transmission of AIDS in California and will save taxpayers billions of dollars in long-term health care costs. The dual policy of confidential reporting and contact tracing, both currently routine procedures for curable communicable diseases in the state, will encourage early diagnosis and treatment for opportunistic infections that otherwise have been lacking.
Leave it to The Times to kowtow to San Francisco elites and militant homosexuals. California voters want good medicine practiced in the state. They want proven public health policies adopted. They want to be freed from the shackles of special interests. They want Proposition 102.
REP. WILLIAM E. DANNEMEYER
