Ballot Measure Referendum to Overturn California's LGBT History Law Gets Green Light

LGBT POV's Karen Ocamb reports that anti-gay efforts to overturned California's recently-passed FAIR Education Act, which requires LGBT curriculum to be taught in public schools, have been approved by the Secretary of State:

Milk The Capitol Resource Institute received the OK today from the California Sec. of State to begin circulating signatures-gathering petitions to place a ballot initiative on the June 2012 ballot to overturn SB 48, the California FAIR Education Act. SB 48 is a natural extension of Harvey Milk Day, requiring public schools to stop discriminating against LGBT people by rendering the LGBT minority invisible in public education. The bill requires schools to start teaching about LGBT history and contributions starting Jan. 1, 2012. Inclusion in California textbooks has been deferred until 2015 because of the economy.

Supporters of the ballot measure must collect 504,000 valid signatures by mid-October. The measure would go on the June 2012 ballot.
