SB 277 passed, New Call to Actions for July 2015

(From Educators for Health & Education Choice)

We are all upset over the passing of SB277 with minimal amendments. The various coalitions and groups are strategizing several efforts including referendum, injunction, litigation and recall. Each one of these scenarios has plusses and minuses. It doesn’t make sense to utilize the precious resources of time, energy and funds until all of the detailed plans have been worked out and budgeted.

The CA legislature is about to go on break in a few short weeks. While they are on vacation we will be setting the stage for phase two of protecting our parental, medical and educational rights in California. We will also be solidifying the Political Action organizations that will apparently be needed to ensure that we have a voice in Sacramento on a year round basis to ensure that this kind of extreme overreaching legislation is stopped in it’s tracks.

What is the CALL TO ACTION?
