Media Alert: California School Bathroom Bill Heads to Governor’s Desk

Sacramento, CA–California Assembly Bill 1266, the “School Bathroom Bill,” passed the Senate and now heads to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. AB1266 will require all public schools to allow gender confused youth to use facilities—including bathrooms and locker rooms—, participate in sex-segregated activities, and play on sports teams of the opposite sex based solely on their perceived “gender identity” and not their biological sex.

“As a society, we know we must protect children from harm, but this law is in direct violation of that principle,” said Brad Dacus, President of Pacific Justice Institute. “These politicians have disregarded the safety and privacy of all children, in exchange for appeasing the vocal LGBT lobby,” Dacus continued.

PJI has lead the opposition to AB1266 throughout its stint in the legislature, and also created as a focal point for the opposition. PJI staff attorney Matthew McReynolds also testified in both houses of the legislature in opposition to the bill. PJI is encouraging all concerned citizens to contact the Governor’s office at (916) 445-2841 to tell him to veto this legislation.
