Contribution limits proposed

Alarmed that two-thirds of $330 million in contributions to California ballot measures in 2006 were in amounts of $1 million or more, a political watchdog group proposed Friday to limit contributions to $100,000, to level the playing field.

The limit on contributions is one of several changes proposed by the Center for Governmental Studies, a Los Angeles-based nonpartisan group.

Other proposed changes include extending the period for circulating petitions to qualify initiatives from 150 days to 365.
