Six measures have qualified for the November ballots, including an initiative that would give the state insurance commissioner power to reject health insurance premium hikes, and one that to raise the $250,000 cap on medical malpractice damages.

The deadline for measures to qualify for the ballot was last week, but legislators have more flexibility. In the past, they have introduced measures on the ballot past the cutoff.
