After series of articles, legislators say N.C. hospitals should provide more charity care

From the News & Observer:

U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, the most influential member of Congress on nonprofit issues, says most hospitals in North Carolina need to do more to help poor and uninsured patients.

Grassley, an Iowa Republican, was responding to articles by The News & Observer and The Charlotte Observer last week that found that most hospitals in the state spend less than 3 percent of their budgets on charity care.
