this news release highlighting the findings of our recent campaign finance data analysis of state proposition fundraising.
Overall $70 million has been raised to support and oppose the five measures on the ballot. Two-thirds of all the money raised comes from just one donor, Pacific Gas & Electric, which has donated $46 million in support of Prop. 16, a measure the company is sponsoring that would impose new two-thirds voter approval requirements for local public electricity providers if enacted. CVF's online voter guide lists the top five donors for and against each measure - this kind of information is a great short cut for voters looking for last-minute, reliable information on the state propositions.
