Proposition 93's largest donor, the Service Employees International Union, received a special provision in AB 1x that allows it to expand its membership by replacing licensed physicians and nurses with medical assistants it represents.

-- The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) contributed $35,000 to eliminate the ability of the new state insurance pool to bulk purchase cheaper drugs.
