As promised, Education Voters of Idaho (EVI) disclosed its donor list on Wednesday, according to an Associated Press story in the Idaho Statesman.

The three largest contributors to the campaign in favor of  the trio of education reforms, known as Propositions 1, 2 and 3, which were passed by the 2011 Idaho Legislature, were Albertson heir Joe Scott, $250,000; New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, $200,000; and the Republican Governor's Public Policy Commission, $50,000. In all, EVI reported collecting $640,000 from two dozen donors.

Secretary of State Ben Ysursa went to court to force the disclosure with a Boise judge ruling in his favor. EVI insisted it was under no obligation to release that information because it is an IRS-recognized nonprofit entity.

The fate of the three propositions will be decided by voters at the Nov. 6 general election.
