Signatures for California's 2 June initiatives cost $4.4 million
Pacific Gas & Electric is the sole donor to Proposition 16, and has kicked in $6.5 million to date. Through February 9, this campaign has paid Direct Voices, a subsidiary of Arno Political Consultants, $2,199,794 for signature-gathering on the proposed initiated constitutional amendment.
Mercury Insurance is the sole donor to Proposition 17, providing $3.5 million to get the campaign started. They've paid $2,273,745 through February 9 to National Petition Management for signature-gathering, or about $3.15 per signature based on news reports that indicate that 720,000 signatures were collected on the proposed initiated state statute.
The other three measures on California's June 8 ballot are legislative referrals, which required no signature-gathering to qualify for the ballot.
