Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The California Voter Foundation has added up the cash collected to support and oppose the five propositions on the ballot next week, finding that the campaigns have racked up a combined $69.7 million.

Nearly two-thirds of that cash came from Pacific Gas & Electric, which has poured $46 million into the campaign for Proposition 16, a constitutional amendment that would require two-thirds voter approval on proposals for a public utility to expand services to new customers or new territories using public funds or bonds.

"PG&E's spending to support Prop. 16 has eclipsed all other proposition spending this election season," the foundation's president, Kim Alexander, said in a statement.

To put the big-dollar blitzes in perspective, the combined total raised for the ballot measures is about $10 million less than what GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman had blown through as of the last reporting period.

The foundation has compiled a list of the top donors for each measure here. You can find all campaign finance reports at the Secretary of State's website.
