Proposition 61 could fuel one of the most expensive ballot measure battles in California and even the nation in 2016. As of August 16, 2016, the opposition campaign, backed by several large pharmaceutical companies, received more than seven times the contributions provided to the support campaign.

Support:    $9,462,638.37

As of August 2016, all but one of the listed campaign contributions large enough to require reporting were donated by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. The other campaign contribution was donated by the California Nurses Association PAC. The total contributions provided were current as of July 9, 2016. The total amount for expenditures listed below was also current as of July 9, 2016.

Most of the opposing campaign contributions were made by pharmaceutical companies. As of August 16, 2016, the top 10 largest donors were responsible for about 77 percent of the total contributions made in support of Proposition 61, and eight of those donors were from out-of-state. The following chart shows information about the PAC that filed to oppose this initiative. The total contributions provided were current as of August 16, 2016.
