Sac Bee | The latest on California politics and government

The California Teachers Association has deposited another $2.2 million into the campaign to pass Propositions 1A and 1B, bringing the group's total spending to nearly $5 million.
The union also donated $350,000 to the umbrella campaign for all six measures on the May 19 special election ballot.
Proposition 1B would ensure repayment to schools of $9.3 billion starting in 2011. But it only goes into effect if Proposition 1A also passes. Hence the dual campaign.
