 Measure J, the extension of Los Angeles County's half-cent sales tax for transportation on next month's ballot, has netted close to $2 million in contributions from corporations, unions and wealthy individuals, finance documents show.

Over three weeks ending Oct. 20, Yes on Measure J collected $1.95 million in large donations from organizations including Anschutz Entertainment Group, the L.A. Dodgers and the Museum Associates, a nonprofit operating the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, records show.
Transit tax backers have given $2.12 million since the campaign began, nearly meeting a target of $2.2 million that strategists estimated would be needed to reach voters with a TV advertising blitz as the election draws near.
