The week in political donations
The most-talked about donation of the week came from the California Building
Industry Association, which gave $500,000 to Rebuilding California, a
committee controlled by Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, and
$500,000 to Let’s Rebuild California, which is a committee dedicated to the
November infrastructure campaign. Perata’s Rebuilding California committee
also received $250,000 from Jerry Perenchio, the longtime California
political financier and major donor to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
