BALLOT FAIL: SB48 Opponents Miss Petition Deadline

BALLOT FAIL: SB48 Opponents Miss Petition Deadline


The opponents of the FAIR Education Act admitted today that they do not have enough petition signatures to bring a vote against the law, which mandates age-appropriate LGBT history lessons in California's schools.

The bill, known also as SB48, was approved by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this year. In addition to teaching LGBT history, students would also be instructed about people with disabilities, and people of color because of the new law.

According to Stop SB48, the group needed 750,000 signatures by September 30 to get the initiative on the November 2012 ballot. Equality California, which helped usher the bill through the state legislature, announced Tuesday that the antigay group could not garner enough signatures.
