CARSON, Calif. – The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders invested almost $900,000 in a ballot initiative to fast-track their proposed stadium in Carson, according to campaign finance reports filed Monday.

The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday, it’s about half the amount spent for a similar approval by the rival stadium project in Inglewood backed by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

In April, the Carson City Council unanimously approved a measure that allowed the $1.7-billion plan to bypass lengthy and expensive environmental reviews.

The Chargers contributed $466,000 to the campaign — known as Carson2gether — and the Raiders kicked in $424,000.
