The chances of this passing are slim here in CA but every dollar the unions spend on this is one less they can use around the country. The unions regard this as life and death and will defeat it by "any means necessary." Last time around, Arnold sponsored similar measure. The teachers' union mortgaged their building to raise money to defeat it ;-). If you want to get involved with the initiative see http://stopspecialinterestmoney.org/

Also, check out the history of Prop 226 in June of 1998 and how all liberal 501(c)3 orgs, (even churches) pitched in to "trump" that measure. It started out way ahead with over 70% polling support!!!
