A good win for the company.

But, longer term, "fighting" the regulatory beast will continue to be a Herculean task as every time a head is chopped off, two heads will grow, just like the Lernaean Hydra. It can be done but requires a sword and fire, perhaps a nice challenge for Mr. Thiry.

Our California ballot comes up Nov 6th:

Let's hope CA voters are rational and defeat it.

Pretty clear, that dialysis is growing problem in CA, and the state will need private providers to expand into poor
and rural areas to cope with this problem, unless the state wants to open and run more clinics themselves.
This dialysis issue is likely the most serious health crisis CA has, exacerbated by the influx of immigrants, who
are tying up the emergency rooms in poor/rural areas.  Somebody has to take care of these people.

If passed, I don't see why private providers would bother to expand their operations in CA, when their are
other states that would welcome new clinics with open arms.

We will see if the voters get it.
