The article reports on a warning of federal receiver J. Clark Kelso if lawmakers in San Francisco, California, refuse to sign off on a $7 billion lease-revenue bond financing plan. Kelso was appointed by federal judge Thelton Henderson who ordered the prison hospital health care system into a receivership. This followed a ruling that the state had failed to quickly implement a 2002 settlement agreement in a case challenging the constitutional adequacy of health care services provided to inmates.
