Opponents of a controversial new California law that protects the rights of transgender students appear to have acquired the 500,000 signatures required to have an initiative to repeal it placed on the ballot.
The group calling itself “Privacy for All Students” — which earlier this month was criticized for lying about scope of Assembly Bill 1266, which it claimed had led to an increase in student rape in schools — submitted 620,00 signatures to California authorities on Sunday.
Each of California’s 58 counties will independently conduct a random sampling of the submitted signatures to assure that they are legitimate. If they are found to be, the anti-AB1266 referendum could be on the November 2014 ballot.
