Who's in a giving mood?



A full picture of who is backing the political action committees supporting and opposing the prepared meals tax won't be available until after the third quarter filing reports are released later today, but the News and Observer has a preliminary breakdown of how the two groups have generated their financial support thus far.

Durham Citizens Against the Food Tax has received $26,000 in in-kind gifts, the bulk of that sum coming from Americans for Prosperity, a national low-tax lobbying group.

On the other side, the Durham Prepared Meals Tax Committee has managed to raise $19, 150, its largest donations coming from Triangle based companies, Capital Broadcasting Corp and Teer Associates of Durham.
