Want to know how much campaigns have received in donations for November’s ballot measures? Then you’re in luck, as the Fair Political Practices Commission is ensuring transparency will be on full display by publishing a report of the major donors of $10,000 or more to state ballot measures voted upon in 2012. The report tracks donors beginning January 1, 2010 based on data electronically filed and posted on the Secretary of State's website. It will now be that much easier to track who is spending money and on which campaigns.
Note that at the end of June, committees had raised more than $84 million to fight or support November’s 11 ballot measures. Ann Ravel, chairwoman of the FPPC, commented that “Although there are limitations on the amount a state candidate may receive from a single contributor, there are no such limits for committees that are formed to support or oppose a ballot measure. It is crucial that we provide the voters with tools to see where the money is coming from so they can make informed choices.''
