  • For the Proposition 93 (term limits) campaign, the Board voted to spend "an initial $1 million contribution, with a second $1 million approved if a poll conducted by SEIU shows the measure is viable."
  • The Board unanimously voted to spend "up to $40,000 for polling the Prop 93 term limits initiative" and "$300,000 for Sen. Perata’s committee for Prop. 93."
  • The Board unanimously voted "to spend $150,000 for opinion research and polling on getting the Healthcare bill on the 2008 ballot."
  • "A motion was made and seconded to add $170,000 to the $1.1 million Member Involvement budget to replace funds that were sent to help in the Iowa local’s member program. The motion passed unanimously."
