Insurance Industry Vastly Outspends Measure's Supporters

Opponents of a measure on California's November ballot by April had outspent its supporters by more than 30 to 1.

July 2014

The measure, still unnumbered at press time, would require health insurers to get state approval for rate changes (except on employer-sponsored, large-group plans). Through April, donors supporting the measure included unions, consumer groups, and four individuals who gave $100 apiece. All the contributions to defeat the measure came from insurance companies.

$425,521- Spending by supporters
