The legislation, SB 48, is also known as the "gay history bill," and requires school curricula in California to include contributions by gay and lesbian Americans.
I talked to Brad Dacus, attorney for and president of the Pacific Justice Institute, one of the groups trying to qualify the referendum, who said this about the FAIR Act:
As far as we're concerned, this is a very extreme liberal piece of legislation that requires history and sociology to no longer be objective and focusing on accomplishments of individuals. But instead, it becomes subjective and focuses specifically on how they conduct themselves in their bedroom...That has no place in public schools. If we're going to keep history as education and not as indoctrination, then history needs to focus on history.
