Cal-Access California automated lobbying and campaign contribution and expenditure search system / California Secretary of State
Cal-Access is your window into the universe of campaign finance and lobbying at the California state government level. Who contributes and how much to the campaigns of candidates for Governor, other statewide offices, and the State Legislature? Who finances campaigns for and against state ballot propositions? Who pays for all those political ads on radio and television and for those political ads crammed into your mailbox at election time? Who pays to lobby state government on issues that affect all Californians? Cal-Access provides the answers. Click on either Campaign Finance or Lobbying Activity above and follow the money trail. The information is derived from electronically filed reports submitted by candidates, political action committees, political parties, ballot measure committees, major donors, lobbyists, and lobbyist employers. Campaign organizations with receipts or expenditures of $50,000 or more and lobbying entities with payments of $5,000 or more file electronically.
