Who gave the 66 cents?

"[Washington State Medical Association Executive Director Tom] Curry also noted that while I-336 backers claim a broad coalition of consumer and health advocates' support, all but 66 cents of the $727,500.66 raised by the initiative sponsors so far comes from the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association." I-336 is one of two initiatives competing in an anticipated lawyers-vs.-doctors ballot showdown in the Evergreen State. (Rebecca Cook, "How sick is malpractice mess?", AP/Tacoma News Tribune, Jan. 17). See Dec. 13.
