Voters will decide whether to approve funding of Pullman (Wash.) Regional Hospital's $29 million general obligation bonds for various hospital projects, according to a Lewiston Tribune report.

The issue will be on the April 23 ballot.

The bonds would allow the hospital to acquire and implement a communitywide EHR, build a community health facility, buy new medical technology and make other hospital upgrades, according to the Tribune.

Residents would help fund the bonds via a property tax assessment.
