As the national health-care reform debate rages on in Washington, D.C., lawmakers in many states are offering complementary — or counter — proposals. Similar efforts are occurring around energy and climate-change policy, and other policies, at both the state and national levels.

A groundbreaking collaboration by the National Institute on Money in State Politics and the Center for Responsive Politics created this unique view of the top 10,000 donors to political campaigns at both the state and national level—information that exists nowhere else. State political campaign money includes donations to political parties and ballot measure committees, as well as to candidates for elected office.

Top donors consist of companies, labor organizations, and special interest groups. Totals include money given by employees, subsidiaries, and/or locals affiliated with the donor.

Of the $5,784,749,560 in itemized contributions that was given to state-level state and federal federal political campaigns during the 2007 and 2008 election cycles, $22,709,783 (0.4%) came from the 7 (of the top 10,000 1,000 100 ) state and federal contributors that matched your search of(Electric Utilities) (in Missouri).

Summary of Data Sources

The Institute currently receives its Missouri data from the Missouri Ethics Commission. The Institute obtains scanned images from the Web and supplements those by obtaining the paper reports filed by candidates who do not report electronically.

After the Institute receives the contribution information and puts it into a database, staff members verify that all candidates are represented in the database and that their political party affiliations and their win/loss statuses are correct. Researchers then standardize the contributor names and assign political donors an economic interest code, based either on the occupation and employer information contained on the disclosure reports or on information found through a variety of research resources. These codes are closely modeled on the Federal Securities and Exchange Commission system.

This unique database can be searched for multi-state and national trends, allowing ordinary citizens and professional researchers to “follow the money” behind key issues and from key contributors across state lines.
