California Legislature can repeal a referendum
An AB 1266 referendum is not the answer; exiting government schools is

Did you know that if the California Legislature passes a bad bill, and the Governor signs it...

...and then the People mount a referendum campaign and then vote down the bad bill on the ballot....

...that the California Legislature can repeal the People's referendum after it passes?

California Constitution, Article II, Section 10:

SEC. 10.  (a) An initiative statute or referendum approved by a majority of votes thereon takes effect the day after the election unless the measure provides otherwise. If a referendum petition is filed against a part of a statute the remainder shall not be delayed from going into effect.
   (b) If provisions of 2 or more measures approved at the same election conflict, those of the measure receiving the highest affirmative vote shall prevail.
   (c) The Legislature may amend or repeal referendum statutes. It may amend or repeal an initiative statute by another statute that becomes effective only when approved by the electors unless the initiative statute permits amendment or repeal without their approval.

Because of this legal fact, the referendum option has been rarely used in California because of its extremely weak effect compared to stronger ballot initiatives, such as the statutory initiative (which the Legislature cannot overturn, but state courts can overturn) or a constitutional amendment (which is the strongest and generally beyond the reach of state courts).

Since 1912, there have been 1,727 statewide initiatives cleared for signature gathering in California. Of these, only 4% (77) have been referenda that were cleared for circulation. Along with being the weakest type of ballot initiative, referenda have the shortest time to qualify (90 days after a bill is signed compared to 150 days for a statutory initiative or a constitutional amendment).

The serious question is, if AB 1266 (transsexual school bathrooms) were repealed by the People via a ballot referendum, would the California Legislature, which has a supermajority of Democrats in both houses, repeal the repeal?

Given the record and heightened immoral agenda of Democrat state legislators, it's very likely. Pushing cross-dressing and "sex changes" upon children is very important to homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists.

It is therefore quite reasonable to expect that these perverse activists will make "their" Democrat elected legislators strike down the People's vote against the transsexual school agenda, just like "LGBT" activists relentlessly worked to make "their" federal judges strike down Prop. 8 on marriage. You can at least count on them to try.

Because of these facts about the weakness of ballot referenda in California, and given that AB 1266 is only 1 of 10 sexual indoctrination laws mandated upon every child in California government schools, the only way to protect your child from the unnatural, unhealthy homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda is to permanently remove your boys and girls from the immoral government schools and enter the safe havens of homeschooling and solid church schools. Armed with faith in God and love for your children, you can do it!

Determine to rescue your child today

Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
James 4:17 NKJV
