    New campaign disclosure reports made public Monday cover the weeks immediately before and after the Nov. 4 election.

    They show that elected officials, businesses, churches and individuals poured millions more into the contest than previously reported.

    The final tallies show that at year's end, opponents of Proposition 8 had raised $43.3 million and had a little more than $730,000 left on hand.

    The measure's sponsors raised $39.9 million and had $983,000 left over.
