Top Recipients of Big Pharma Cash in California

    Pharmaceutical companies and their trade groups gave more than $2 million to current members of the Legislature in 2013-2014, about 2 percent of the total raised, records show. Nine of the top 20 recipients are either legislative leaders or serve on either the Assembly or Senate health committees. Receiving more than $95,000, the top recipient of industry campaign cash is Sen. Richard Pan, a Sacramento Democrat and doctor who is carrying the vaccine bill.

Reporter Jim Miller also found that “the industry donated more than $500,000 to outside campaign spending groups that helped elect some current members last year.”
