A referendum to overturn a new California law that provides transgender students certain rights in public schools will not appear on the November ballot.
Beginning next week, Californians will see a flurry of new laws take effect.
California has become the first state to enshrine certain rights for transgender K-12 students in state law, requiring public schools to allow those students access to whichever restroom and locker room they want.
California lawmakers approved a bill Wednesday that would require public K-12 schools to let transgender students choose which restrooms they use and which school teams they join based on their gender identity.
A California bill would allow transgender students to have equal access to public school programs and facilities.
